Getting Started with ez-opendata

ez-opendata is a set of ez (easy) to use javascript functions to call open-data sources such as openstreetmap, wikipedia or wikimedia. It is tiny and has no dependencies.

It can work for javascript and/or typescript projects on the browser or with nodejs.

ez-opendata is the foundation for picsaroundme.
