Hitchwiki is a collaboratively sourced site for information about hitchhiking and other cheap forms of transportation. Hitchwiki includes a map with geolocated notes from hitchhikers, describing their experience hitchhiking in a given spot.
The Hitchwiki Maps API provides developer access to map data. Applications can programmatically access information on particular locations or retrieve a list of places that meet specified criteria. Default information includes latitude, longitude, elevation, rating, and other geographic details. In 2016, the API transitioned to read-only.
Most of this maps hitchhiking places are in Europe. If you have registered, you can set a point of your current country from settings. The map will center there whenever you log in.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
