Introduction to the SOTA API

Here we present some basic documentation for the SOTA API. Please note that the API is in a fairly early stage of development as is this documentation! All feedback is most welcome and I'll work on extending and improving over time. If you are reading this, you probably already have my email address. I would appreciate it if you did not share these pages with others for now. If you know of anyone else who needs to make use of the API, please point them in my direction.

The goal is to provide useful access to SOTA data for third party software applications in a way that is robust, standards driven and sustainable.

I consider the API to be in a beta state at this stage. I.e. please don't get too upset if things change. For example, I know I need to get a decent versioning paradigm in place. And it's possible I may make changes to the basic schema.

Currently endpoints are provided to allow access to the following data:

  • Associations
  • Regions
  • Summits

The next target for development will be:

  • Spots
  • Alerts

Thanks for your patience!
