What is GISAPI.io?

GISAPI.io is an API enabling developers to build geospatial data discovery into their applications. The API pulls data from a database that contains 750,000 layers from 1,890 unique data sources making it the largest collection of ArcGIS server layers.

Getting Started

Start building right away by using either the Python or JavaScript Software Development Kits (SDK). These SDKs make it super easy to use the API in your project with just a few lines of code.

Python SDK

The GISAPI-SDK can be installed using pip and then imported into your project.

The data GISAPI.io serves comes from the databased built and maintained by the GISDATA.io. The GISDATA.io team built a geospatial data indexing pipeline that collects metadata from publicly available ArcGIS Servers. GISAPI.io is built by the same team to enable developers to easily access the data and fulfill its mission of making geospatial data more accessible.
