Overview and Getting Started

The NZOR web application programming interface is a publically accessible service that enables applications to use data from the core NZOR repository. The API is designed to be as RESTful as possible so each resource has a unique URI and well known HTTP verbs are used to specify the action to perform on that resource.

What is Possible using the API?

The API provides full programmatic read access to the data contained in NZOR. It is designed to encourage integration with the core NZOR data.


An important use case is providing a mechanism to synchronise a private repository of taxonomic details with NZOR.
