Accessing OS APIs

An API is a way of feeding data through the internet using a link. APIs give you access to the most up to date data available and will save you having to download and manage large data sets.

To use OS APIs you need to access the ‘API Endpoint address’ in the OS Data Hub. This is the link that will give you access to the data you need. Add the API Endpoint address to your mapping software to select and visualise the data.

1. Go to your API Dashboard in the OS Data Hub

2. Create a new project

3. Select the API you want to use

4. The API Endpoint address is made available

5. Copy and paste the API Endpoint address into your GIS
