Many Sitka platform products offer web-based APIs that are free and open to the public. Using these APIs, you can quickly access your information stored in the Sitka cloud and leverage this data via custom integrations into your own web, mobile, and/or desktop applications.
Below you will find API documentation and other resources to help you leverage your Sitka-managed information assets in new and creative ways. If you don’t find what you’re looking for or have a suggestion for improvement, please let us know.
The Keystone Identity Manager is a standards-based user authentication and account management platform that is integrated into a number of Sitka products to simplify and streamline user management and to provide web single sign-on capabilities between Sitka platform products. Although many of our read-only API endpoints are open to anonymous users, those that have the ability to access private information or modify data in any way require the end user to authenticate using Keystone credentials first. As an OpenID Connect and OAuth2 provider, the Keystone Identity Manager integrates easily into your application for a seamless and secure user experience.
GeoOptix is Sitka’s multi-program, multi-protocol field data collection and management platform for enterprise research, monitoring, and evaluation programs. GeoOptix manages all aspects of survey planning, field crew scheduling, smart-pad field-enabled data collection, quality control, and data publishing which frees you up to focus on the science and real-world applications of your data. Using the GeoOptix API, you can build your own applications that tap into data uploaded from field crews in real time that are tailored to your specific needs. Using role-based security controls that are baked into GeoOptix, you can control who can add and edit information associated with the surveys being conducted in the field.
Monitoring Resources is a nifty tool that is sponsored by (among others) Bonneville Power Administration, the US Geological Survey, and the Bureau of Land Management to supply the spatial and temporal dimensions of study designs required to implement scientifically-sound research, monitoring, and evaluation studies.
