On a recent trip to Nottingham my mind was racing. As usual. I was thinking about how under-utilised my tube data set was. It'd been used in the tube walk page, which describes the duration of every tube journey if taken on foot. But it only got a few retweets, a couple of favourites, and not much else.
So I created an API to expose the data to the rest of the world, in the hope I'll get more!
The URL stub is:
These are filters, and are combined using the 'AND' operation. i.e. all filters must conform.
|name||Filter by name|
|zone||Filter by zone|
|long/longitude||Filter by longitude, within a given distance|
|lat/latitude||Filter by latitude, within a given distance|
|distance||The distance to used when filtering by long/lat, in meters|
|sortby||Sorting parameter. Can be name, zone, longitude, latitude or distance (only if filtering by long/lat)|
|sortorder||If provided, must be 'asc' or 'desc', and orders the parameters in 'sortby'|
Find the most easterly stations:
Or north-most stations in zone 1:
Or the closest to the meridan, sorted by distance
Or the closest to the meridian, ignoring the latitude:
