The GeoSeer API

Integrate Search into your Applications / WebGIS
The GeoSeer API allows you to easily integrate OGC data search into applications or WebGIS'. With it, your users can readily search through OGC services and layers, adding them to their maps/views. GeoSeer has masses of results for WMS, WFS, WCS, and WMTS.

Expose your Users to the World's Data
There are countless datasets out there, covering small villages in Africa up to full, globe-spanning affairs and everything in between. With the GeoSeer API you can enable your users to easily find those datasets with a powerful, yet simple-to-use search.

Un-silo your Users
From hydrology to geology, demographics to politics, GeoSeer's API provides easy access to official, authoritative, and definitive data on any number of subjects.


Spatial and Service Filtering
Use bounding box filters to only find datasets that intersect with the user's current window. Service filters allow you to only search for the types of service your application supports. Or use the Lat/Lon from a pin to filter down the results to only datasets that intersect that point.

Find Services, not just Layers
Whether they're hosted by a branch of the United Nations or your local council, quickly and easily find services that host the sorts of data your organisation and users need.

Easy Access to Complex Data
There's no need to parse convoluted - often inconsistent - XML GetCapabilities documents: we've done all that for you. The GeoSeer API exposes almost all of the data from a service, cleaned-up, with a single, consistent, well-documented, and easy-to-use API.

Questions

Do you offer a trial?
Sure, a 14 day free trial is available, just signup below. And of course, you can easily get a flavour of the search results via the free web-search. Lets not forget the API Demo as well which will give you a feel for what you can do with it.

Are there custom plans available?
Definitely. The Enterprise offering is very flexible, just like you'd expect it to be. Please contact us to discuss your needs and see what we can do for you.

Do you offer discounts for charities/education etc?
Yes! We know charities/not-for-profits/etc need to be spending their money on their core objective which is usually some form of making-the-world-a-better-place. So we try and do our bit by offering discounts to help you focus your funds where you need them.

Why isn't this free like the web-search?
Unfortunately we have costs to cover; "rent doesn't pay itself" as they say. Creating and hosting GeoSeer costs money and while we make the web-search free because we want to make this service available to everybody, it's not sustainable without income to cover those costs. We have moral issues with web advertising so we don't have any of that, and we don't believe in selling user data either.

API Documentation

The GeoSeer API is thoroughly documented using the OpenAPI 3 standard allowing developers easy access to the API via standardised tooling, including automated SDK generation.

You can find the GeoSeer API docs here: https://api.geoseer.net/docs/

If you want to use your own tooling for viewing the docs, then you simply need to point them at either https://api.geoseer.net/openapi.json or https://api.geoseer.net/openapi.yaml files.
