Can data be downloaded or accessed via an API?

Presently, Active Places facility data can be downloaded either via:

1)  Active Places Power Reports (for example, the Detailed Report), for a given area of interest, which will create a snapshot report that can be downloaded as a single csv file.  This csv file contains a standard set of fields including Easting and Northing grid coordinates.

2) – Active Places Open Data (see Active Places Power webpage footer - no login required) which includes all facilities EXCEPT those that are: closed, under construction, planned or are marked as private on the database.

Active Places open data is available as CSV flat files or in a JSON format. Both formats are updated on a nightly basis.  (Note this replaces the version previously available via the spogo website, which was decommissioned in January 2015)
