HarvestChoice provides a series of web services allowing programmatic access to HarvestChoice datasets for sub-Saharan Africa. Requests are sent over the web over HTTP allowing connections through a broad range of clients, including browsers and mobile devices.
The API provides a number of methods to describe, query and aggregate over seven hundred layers of spatially-explicit data for sub-Saharan Africa based on fine-resolution spatial layers (10km x 10km grid).
