Dear EEA Team.

together with the Organization Getidos we are currently developing an App to show bathing spots and their water quality to users, in order to raise awareness of water quality issues. I have seen, that the EEA offers a large data set with exactly the data we would need.


My Question is, if there is any way to access this data using an API (i. e. REST). In order to include it into our app, we would need to be able load the data depending on parameters like location, water quality, water type (river, coastal ... )

I have seen, that the data is already used in a map visualization, but i am not sure if this map is using an API to get the data, or if the data was integrated manually. Maybe someone has further information on this?

Also, it would be fine if we would be able to download the data in a Format like JSON.

It would be great, if you can help with my question, or if you could point me to someone, who can.

Thank you very much for your support and help,

Paul Hoepner

I have found a JSON Formatted Access here: http://www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu/download-data.php

Not sure if there is also filtering / api services with this, but at least this way it is readable ..

We publish the bathing water results annually including providing access to the bathing water quality results in country Excel files and access via the map viewer. In the map viewer we provide links to national and local bathing water sites. Users are welcome to download the Excel files for use in apps or presentations (e.g. maps in newspapers); however we do for the moment not provide access to the data via API, as the data set is only updated once per year at the start of the bathing water season (and in case errors are detected in the data sets).
Kind regards.

2) How is this data shared (e.g. via the API)?
3) Does using these data involve any fees?
