Our data is delivered either in a standard format or in a specialized form defined by you.

The standard formats allow automatic format conversion by appending a format parameter to the request: ?format=json for example.

Note that errors are both reported within the response as well as in the HTTP header with the appropriate HTTP status codes. (200 is ok, 4xx is a client problem, 5xx a server problem.)

Default encoding is UTF-8.

Default timezones for all dates and times is UTC+0.

If you need help handling the output, don't hesitate to contact us for technical support.

Parameter: ?format=html

HTML is the default output format. It shows all data with optional metadata in tabular form. Hover over values to see the metadata.

Parameter: ?format=json

Optional callback: ?format=json&callback=...

The data and optional metadata is returned in the JavaScript Object Notation.

If an optional callback parameter is submitted, the response will be wrapped in a function call, according to the JSONP specifications. This allows for cross-domain requests from JavaScript.

Parameter: ?format=jsonarray

Optional callback: ?format=jsonarray&callback=...

An alternative to the JSON output with differently formatted data: Instead of timestamps in the keys, timeseries are arrays of objects with the timestamp stored in the object.

Parameter: ?format=xml

All data and optional metadata is encoded in XML format.

Parameter: ?format=csv

All data (withouth metadata) is outputted as CSV.

Values are separated by ;, surrounded by " and using \ as escape character.

Parameter: ?format=yaml

All data and optional metadata is serialized in the YAML format.

See yaml.org for specifications and interpretation libraries.

Parameter: ?format=php

Serialized PHP data and optional metadata.

Use the PHP function unserialize() to decode.

Parameter: ?format=text

Some data can be returned as simple text, without any metadata.

For simple visualizations, we can create images featuring time graphs and parameter plots, weather symbols, maps, alert notficications etc.
