Adding a new API endpoint
Setting up a new API endpoint to serve geographic data (UN/LOCODE ports)
Adding a new API endpoint#
For this lesson, we'll return to the server code to create a new API. We'll also add some geographic data to the database.
Adding geographic data to the database#
Add data from the UN/LOCODE dataset to your PostgreSQL databases (the local database and the remote Heroku database) using the provided
unlocode.sql file. UN/LOCODE is a great collection of the latitude and longitude points of almost all terminals in the world, including airports, seaports, rail terminals, and many others.
Adding an API endpoint for geographic data#
Add a separate API endpoint to
index.js to retrieve the new data.
