API Documentation and Specifications
Not only does Live Earth allow you to view items on a map and see them update over time, it also lets you display disparate data streams from various sources in a single unified application.
This documentation explains how to leverage the API. The API is RESTful and uses JSON as the transport mechanism. The list of endpoints can be found below.
[Note: Each endpoint includes a short description of the purpose of the endpoint, the endpoints rl and method (e.g., GET, POST, PUT, DELETE), a fully annotated schema for both the request and response payload, as well as example JSON for the request and response object.]
Documentation to Push Data
[NOTE: For Dev and Trial accounts, we store data for 7 days in our cloud before the data is cleaned up. So, when pushing data, make sure the timestamp in the JSON string is not older than 7 days.]
