Geograph Image APIs

Published: 19 October 2016
We have a number of APIs for accessing over 5 million Geograph Images, each have evolved at a different time in the projects history, with somewhat overlapping features. There is the 'offical' documentation page at http://www.geograph.org.uk/help/apiExternal link - but its a bit of a confusing mess now. It doesnt provide a high-level overview, so that is what this page attempts to do.

Note this page only concentrates on APIs for retrieving actual images, we have many more APIs providing meta-data, and aggregate statistics and the like. See: LinkExternal link


Most APIs need a API keyExternal link, when using these APIs dont forget to honour the Creative Commons licence. Currently ALL images use Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 Generic (CC BY-SA 2.0)External link

For what the other Geograph projects offer, see http://www.geograph.org/downloads.phpExternal link
