Recreation.gov stores information about federal recreation areas, facilities, events, activities, and more in the Recreational Information Database (RIDB). This information has been made available through the RIDB Web Services API. This initiative integrates multiple Federal channels and sources about recreation opportunities into a one-stop, searchable database of recreational areas nationwide.
The RIDB API returns responses in XML and JSON.
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and data go hand-in-hand. No wonder the Database category on ProgrammableWeb is such a popular place to visit. In this article, we highlight the most visited API profiles in that category, including APIs for access to food, barcodes, and movie databases.
