It's been some time since we announced that there would be a transition period for the Open Data project. We're back to give another update and put something usable in your hands for feedback.
Open Data vNext in Technical Preview
The Open Data API is available in technical preview. We're borrowing the term, and what this means for us is that we are reasonably sure this is what the data will look like in terms of endpoints and model schema, but are open to feedback and can still introduce breaking changes. The API is available at https://openapi.data.uwaterloo.ca and the relevant documentation (using Swagger) is available at https://openapi.data.uwaterloo.ca/api-docs/.
Please see the Getting Started page.
We'll continue to iterate on changes based on any feedback and add a few more popular data sets before we proceed to the next phase.
Source API Updates
We've added improvements and new data features over the last 3 months. We will continue to add authenticated and private data end points as client needs arise and we can secure partnerships with authoritative sources for the requested data. Some of the recent data additions include service indicators, milestone information, Watcard photo data, and revisions due to the Watiam upgrade.
You can see the changes we've made reflected here.
