Data


The ATDW ATLAS API allows you to extract tourism information from the ATDW database. The database contains over 36,000 tourism related products across a variety of categories. The API allows for geospatial searching of the data and allows filtering using the ATDW content structure.

At a high level the content can be broken down into categories. These include Accommodation, Attractions, Events, Tours and Destination Information

Each of these categories can also be split into sub classifications. As an example Accommodation has classifications for Hotel, Farm Stay, Resort and many more.

Each product has associated attributes to allow you to find products with specific criteria. There are hundreds of different attributes but as an example you may find products with a BBQ attribute or a WILDLIFE attribute.
