Access ARMAP’s database of Field Research Projects using a RESTful web service.
Project-level information is available via a configurable Representational State Transfer (REST) service. This service is helpful for downloading records, or to ingest the records dynamically into other databases. This may be particularly helpful for populating metadata records. Project records conform to an interagency project-tracking metadata standard developed in collaboration with the Alaska Data Integration Work Group (ADIwg).
Below you can set parameters for the RESTful XML output. For example, you can customize the output by coordinate system, funding program, principal investigator, proposal number, and more. You do not need to select all parameters. At this time, output is provided as XML (although json may also be available in the future). You may choose the number of projects to return using the “limit” parameter, which by default is set to 10. If you do not select a limit, the entire dataset may take several minutes to download to your browser.
After selecting parameters, copy the customized, permanent URL (a parameterized query string) for use in your own applications or data management systems. Click on the URL to view the output in your browser. (Google Chrome is recommended).
Feedback on our web services is appreciated.
