Using the API¶
Some general rules:
- Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for anything related to the API
- If you want to use the API commercially please contact us. If you’re a company using it to make a hack or dataviz – that’s fine. If you’re bulk scraping the data and using it in your product that’s not.
- Be nice. Please don’t access our API using your data centre full of web-crawlers. Keep requests to a maximum of 2 per second.
- If you are making a web-based hack, please include our logo to acknowledge your use of our API by deep linking to this logo image
- Let us know if you’ve made anything cool using our API - we’d love to see it!
