OpenAerialMap API is an application programming interface (API) that serves metadata about available images and map layers. The API provides access to all imagery metadata information and endpoints to list images available, map layer services available, as well as simple analytics.
The API is split into three available endpoints:
- a metadata endpoint
- a tiled map service (TMS) listing endpoint
- and an analytics endpoint
To get started, you can access the metadata endpoint here: http://api.openaerialmap.org/meta.
Check out the full API documentation for methods to filter and limit results, get an individual image metadata, or add TMS endpoints to the listing.
Having the API up and running is crucial for the whole OAM Ecosystem. Its status is monitored and is available at status.openaerialmap.org.
