Data API#

The CKAN DataStore extension provides an ad hoc database for storage of structured data from CKAN resources. It also offers an API for reading, searching and filtering data without the need to download the entire file first.

You can get access to DataStore API through the following steps:

  1. Go to the resource’s page.

  2. Select the “Data API” button, a pop-up window will show how to use the API and provide some examples.
