Data Mining Programming Python

US National Park API Guide – Python

While working on my project to find the shortest route to all US National Parks, I dealt with the US National Park API. It ended up that the information I needed was not easily accessible from the API, however I learned a lot and thought I would share.

You can download the following Jupyter notebook from my GitHub.

Accessing the US National Park API in Python

The US National Park Service has an API that can be used to get a variety of information about campgrounds, parks, events, and much more. In order to access the API, you must register with a name and e-mail and receive an API key. There is a guide to using the API, however I had some issues with the information provided and I suspect the API has been changed without the documentation not updated. Below I go over what worked for me.

We will be using Python's requests library to make HTTP requests to the API. I began this project using urllib but eventually switched to the requests library because it is easier to use.

In [1]:
import requests # Used to make HTTP requests to the API
import json # Used to process JSON strings

Accessing the 'parks' endpoint

Below we use our API key and access the 'parks' endpoint. NOTE that the parameters dict uses "api_key" instead of "Authorization" as mentioned on the Python code snippet on the NPS website.

We are using v1 of the API because v0 is deprecated. Also, you can only make 500 API requests per hour. The default number of results returned is 50. The data is returned in JSON format with 4 keys/value pairs in the root object: limit, total, start, data.

  • limit is how many entries in data were returned. By default 50 entries are requested.
  • total is how many entries are available to be requested (496 as of this writing)
  • start is works like an offset into the data. We start at 1 by default, but can request to start elsewhere.
  • data is the data that we requested (more on this below)
In [2]:
API_Key_NPS = "YOUR_API_KEY_HERE" # Insert your API key here
endpoint = "https://developer.nps.gov/api/v1/parks?"

parameters = {"api_key":API_Key_NPS} # use "api_key" not "Authorization"
response = requests.get(endpoint, params=parameters)
print("response status code: " + str(response.status_code))
data_all = response.json() # Interpret bytes as JSON format and convert to a Python dict
print('limit: ' + data_all['limit'])
print('total: ' + data_all['total'])
print('start: ' + data_all['start'])
response status code: 200
limit: 50
total: 496
start: 1

What data do we get back?

Let's take a closer look at the data that we got back. The data key within data_all is a list of all of the parks. We can access each park by index and print out the value of a key. We get useful information like description, name, lattitude/longitude, weather, park code, etc.

In [3]:
list_of_parks = data_all['data']
for key in list_of_parks[0].keys(): # iterate over all information about the first park in the list
    print(key + ': ' + list_of_parks[0][key])

Get ALL the data!

In order to get all the data, we will need to send a request with limit >= 496. We can set this limit within our parameters dictionary as shown below. NOTE: If you get status code of 500 from attempting this, see the Extra: Get all the data! (a little bit at a time) section below

In [4]:
parameters = {"api_key":API_Key_NPS, "limit":500} # limit is arbitrary value larger than total number of parks
response = requests.get(endpoint, params=parameters)
print("response status code: " + str(response.status_code))
data_all = response.json() # Interpret bytes as JSON format and convert to a Python dict
print('limit: ' + data_all['limit'])
print('total: ' + data_all['total'])
print('start: ' + data_all['start'])
response status code: 200
limit: 500
total: 496
start: 1

Convert data to pandas DataFrame and pickle

If we want to process the data easily, pandas is a good option. We can also store the data on our local hard drive as a pickle file (.pkl) so that we don't have access the API anymore.

In [5]:
import pandas as pd

df_parks = pd.DataFrame(data_all['data']) # convert list of json objects to dataframe
df_parks = df_parks.drop_duplicates() # remove duplicate parks (since we requested 510 and there are only 507)
print(df_parks)
df_parks.to_pickle('all_park_data.pkl')

Visualize data

Its important to know what the data looks like so we can do some quick plots. We can see that there are many different types of NPS designations and some overlap with eachother. There are seperate designations for 'National Park', 'National and State Parks', 'National Park & Preserve'. This makes it difficult to sort out the National Parks that may also have other designations.

In [6]:
print(df_parks.columns) # what information is available on each park
print(df_parks.shape)

print (df_parks['designation'].value_counts()) # Determine the frequency of each 'designation'

# Attempt to sort out just the 'National Parks'
nationalParks = df_parks[df_parks['fullName'].str.contains("National Park")]
print(nationalParks.shape)
print(nationalParks.fullName)

Extra: Get all the data! (a little bit at a time)

When I initially tried to request all 496 entries at once from the API, I kept getting response status codes of 500 (Internal Server Error). If this happens to you, you can use the work-around below to only request a few entries at a time and append the data as you go along.

In [7]:
responseList = [] # store json responses in a list

for i in range(0,510, 10): # There are currently 507 parks return, but we need this loop to only get 10 at a time.
    parameters = {"api_key":API_Key_NPS, 'limit':'10', 'start':str(i)} # limit is arbitrary value larger than total number of parks
    response = requests.get(endpoint, params=parameters)
    print("request #" + str(i) + " response status code: " + str(response.status_code))
    data = response.json() # Interpret bytes as JSON format and convert to a Python dict
    responseList.append(data["data"])
    print("length of response list " + str(len(responseList)))

Convert responseList to pandas DataFrame

Now we can convert the list of responses into a pandas DataFrame. We also store it as a pickle on the hard drive so we don't have to send requests to the sketchy NPS servers anymore.

In [8]:
parks = pd.concat([pd.DataFrame(x) for x in responseList], ignore_index=True) # convert list of json objects to dataframe
parks = parks.drop_duplicates() # remove duplicate parks (since we requested 510 and there are only 507)
print(parks)
parks.to_pickle('all_park_data_2.pkl')
