New V2 API available

We have released a new V2 version of the API which contains a number of enhancements to the ODS.

– Static data locations now contain both Easting/Northing and Latitude/Longitude point locations.
– Journey time dynamic data is enhanced with additional information on the ANPR number plates matched to calculate the journey time
– New air quality dynamic data feed containing air quality metrics sourced from the new EMOTE air quality stations.
– New Variable Message Sign (VMS) static and dynamic feeds listing both VMS device details and current sign settings.

New API documentation isĀ available from this website.

The existing V1 API version remains unchanged. Existing users are encouraged to migrate to the V2 version as soon as possible, as it is anticipated that the V1 API will be disabled shortly after 31st May 2016.
