Hello,

 

I’m currently using the data and api for a university project and I am unsure how to get access to the end data, I have the api key and am able to see the file in the web browser but how do I go about downloading it automatically, is there another program I should be using or?

 

Thanks

James

Sorry for the delay, I never got the email.


I'm wanting access to the events as an xml file e.g.  https://api.511.org/traffic/events/?api_key=here.xml for example, is that possible?

also when I request the link it shows a few (15ish) events, are there meant to be more or when does the page get updated etc?

Thanks

Hi James,

 

All 511 SF Bay Open Data APIs support a filter ‘format’ that can provide you data in XML or JSON formats. Following are samples for using format filter in traffic events API endpoint.

 

JSON Format: https://api.511.org/traffic/events/?api_key=here&format=json

XML Format: https://api.511.org/traffic/events/?api_key=here&format=xml

 

Secondly, the events API is updated in real time. You will only see events that are active.   

 

Regards,

Kapeel Daryani.
