CanAirIO fixed stations API for fetch published data

CanAirIO Unified API

Initial API version for mobile and fixed CanAirIO stations

Overview

We have a JSON API for the CanAirIO fixed stations, for now it only has two endpoints, the first one for get all current stations that are online right now with the last publication, stations and the second one for retrieve the complete data of each station in the last hour. The output is a DarwinCore record.

Stations list

endpoint: http://api.canair.io:8080/dwc/stations

Sample request for retreive all stations:

curl -G http://api.canair.io:8080/dwc/stations

Sample output of one station only:

The current fixed stations are stored in an InfluxDB database service, each station write a data series time in separated tables. We will change it to different schema soon. For now the next endpoints are enabled.

Data visualization

For now, the shared series time of each stations could be listed in our Grafana dashboard here:

CanAirIO grafana

Mobile track visualization

Data endpoint

Each series time could be fetched via the next endpoint:

http://influxdb.canair.io:8086/query

the full documentation of InfluxDB query syntax could be consulted here

For example:

New schema

We have a new schema, for now the automatic stations are in the main table fixed_stations_01 and these stations have tags for mac, name and geo3, where name is automatic ID.

Select stations IDs:

curl -G 'http://influxdb.canair.io:8086/query?db=canairio' --data-urlencode 'q=select distinct("name") from "fixed_stations_01" limit 100'  > names.json

Select fields from one station ID:

curl -G 'http://influxdb.canair.io:8086/query?db=canairio' --data-urlencode 'q=select "pm25"::field,"U33TTGOTDA585E"::tag from "fixed_stations_01" limit 30'  > U33TTGOTDA585E.json

Also maybe works too:

curl -G 'http://influxdb.canair.io:8086/query?db=canairio' --data-urlencode "q=select \"name\", \"mac\", \"geo3\", \"pm25\" from fixed_stations_01 WHERE \"name\"='6MCESP32DE8CBC2' and time >= now() - 1m" > data_specific_station_last_minute.json

From Python

#!/usr/bin/python3

import requests

endpoint='http://influxdb.canair.io:8086/query'
database='canairio'
parameters = {'q': "select \"name\", \"mac\", \"geo3\", \"pm25\" from fixed_stations_01 WHERE \"name\"='6MCESP32DE8CBC2' and time >= now() - 1m", 'db':database}
response = requests.get(endpoint, params=parameters)
print(response.json())
