Hi

I would like to be able to use the API to list public channels centered around a long/lat location? Something like http://api.thingspeak.com/channels/public?lon=123&lat=123&radius=50

It would enable mashing data from channels with a GIS output

Thanks
Aaron

Aaron,

Thanks for the feature request. We will implement this feature in a future update.

We will provide an API call that returns channels with location data as not all channels have location data. Then, you will be able to search by lat and long and a distance in meters.

Thanks again!
Hans

Hi Aaron,

We recently added the ability to search public channels by location. Here's the relevant documentation: https://thingspeak.com/docs/channels#index .

Here's an example of searching for channels near Pittsburgh: https://thingspeak.com/channels/public?latitude=40.430224&longitude=-80.002441&distance=10 .
