Direct query


You can query the database directly using the following query (GET request):

https://meetjestad.net/data/?type=[sensors|flora|stories]&format=[csv|json]&limit=XXX

The server will offer a file for download containing the Meet je Stad data.

Attributes
The format attribute selects how to pack the data.
  1. Use csv if you want to have a tab separated file for easy import in a spreadsheet or statistics tool.
  2. Using json is convenient if you want to further process the data in a programming language, e.g. Python, PHP or Javascript.
  3. sql can be used if you want to help develop the website and need a local dataset to query.
The type attribute defines which kind of data to download:
  1. sensors selects measurements done by the Meet je Stad sensor stations
  2. flora selects flora observations put in through the website
  3. stories selects the stories database. Please note that CSV export is not possible for stories.
The limit attribute defines the number of rows to return. Setting it to ALL will return all data. Be careful though not to download more data than needed to prevent excessive server load.

Time series
Data can be narrowed down to a number of nodes and a specific time window by adding begin and end attributes to the query, denoted as yyyy-mm-dd,hh:mm. E.g. begin=2017-11-16,12:00 will return data beginning 16th of November 2017 at noon. Times are specified in the UTC timezone.

Sensor sets
When sensordata is queried the ids attribute can be used to get data of a single node or a set of nodes. A comma separates the node numbers. A minus symbol can be used to get a range. E.g. ids=1,3-5,8 will return data for the nodes 1, 3, 4, 5 and 8.
