City of Surrey Open Data API
The City of Surrey is committed to publishing open data to third parties via data feeds through an application programming interface (API). The City encourages developers to deliver and innovate using open data. We make available over 400 public data layers through the API's.
The following data API's are currently available for use:
1. RSS Feeds
To create an RSS feed to a data search, simply append a query parameter to the data.surrey.ca URL. Here is an example:
Explore the CKAN RSS Feeds Online Documentation for details.
2. CKAN API
The data.surrey.ca open data site utilizes CKAN (open source data portal software). CKAN’s Action API is a powerful, RPC-style API that exposes all of CKAN’s core features to API clients. All of a CKAN website’s core functionality (everything you can do with the web interface and more) can be used by external code that calls the CKAN API.
