Quick Start

Create an API Key

Your API requests are authenticated using API keys. Keys can be created, retrieved, and deleted from your Account Dashboard. Under the API Keys tab you can generate multiple keys for a single account, however they will all be tied to the same quota.

Make Your First Request (Programmatically)

In this example to make your first query, send an authenticated request to the raster/timeseries/point endpoint. The following code snippet will retrieve OpenET timeseries data from a single longitude, latitude point in a json format.

curl -X 'POST' \
  'https://openet-api.org/raster/timeseries/point' \
  -H 'accept: application/json' \
  -H 'Authorization: YOUR_API_KEY' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{
  "date_range": [
    "2020-01-01",
    "2020-12-31"
  ],
  "interval": "monthly",
  "geometry": [
    -121.36322,
    38.87626
  ],
  "model": "Ensemble",
  "variable": "ET",
  "reference_et": "gridMET",
  "units": "mm",
  "file_format": "JSON"
}'
