Department of Fisheries wished to help Western Australian developers get access to the SharkSmart data – which was able to communicate information to swimmers, surfers and divers in Western Australia in real time, and provide them with information on sightings and tagged shark detections before hitting the water.
To solve the Department of Fisheries' problem, Integranet created the api.fish.wa.gov.au website which allows developers (and specifically those developers who have registered for GovHack) access to the SharkSmart information currently used by swimmers, surfers and divers to check shark activity before they go to the beach, as well as being able to report shark sightings.
This API is extensively documented, and provides fully worked examples of how to access the dataset provided as well as expected results. This API has allowed the department to add itself to the ever growing list of government organisations exposing their data via the OpenData Initiative.
