The Environment Agency Real Time Flood-Monitoring API displays information related to U.K. flood warnings and flood alerts, flood areas which to which warnings or alerts apply, measurements of water levels and flows, and information on the monitoring stations providing those measurements.
The API provides a REST-style access to the data via simple HTTP GET requests which return data in JSON format. Some data is also available in RDF and XML formats.
Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Feedback, Business, and Nature. Highlights include an API that returns flood data for the U.K. and an API for DEV Community platform articles and other content. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
