CitySDK is a project that's designed to make it easier for cities to expose useful information to developers. So far, the cities of Lisbon, Helsinki, Lamia, Rome, and Amsterdam have joined the project.
The CitySDK Tourism API lets users retrieve information on points of interest (POIs), events, and routes for any city that has provided their data to the CitySDK Framework. API users can search for information by category, tag, description keyword, and geographic coordinates.
At the opening workshops of API Strategy and Practice in Amsterdam yesterday, the CitySDK team presented their progress on developing a set of open APIs that will enable developers to create applications for tourism, mobility and civic participation in one city. These APIs can then be replicated in other cities also using the same uniform API structure.
