Data Feeds for Sussex air quality

What is it?

Our data has always been available on this website, but creating data feeds makes it available for use by developers to widen access to information and combine it with other data sources. We have provided an Application Programming Interface (API) for our air quality data. This uses a copy of our live database, which validates the data and calculates information like air quality indexes and objectives. This has a set of possible requests that try to cover everything we think people would want. Information is requested using web page (http) protocol, and the exact request allows the definition of variables such as dates, that specify exactly what is wanted. Data is then returned to the request, mostly in the machine readable formats of XML or JSON. These formats are easy for applications and websites to read and use.
