Api documentation Idra API
Idra is a web application that federates existing Open Data Management Systems (ODMS) based on different technologies providing a unique access point to search and discover open datasets coming from heterogeneous sources. Idra uniforms the metadata of collected open datasets, thanks to the adoption of international standards (DCAT-AP) and provides a set of RESTful APIs to be used by third party applications. Idra supports natively ODMS based on CKAN, DKAN, Socrata, Orion Context Broker (NGSI v2) and many other technologies. It is also possible to federate generic open data portals, that don’t expose API, using the web scraping functionality. This project is part of FIWARE.
