Access Order Service


The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) Common Access Order Service provides a RESTful application programming interface (API) to retrieve information about previous orders  based on a set of parameters to the /v1 or /v1/airs URLs, respectively. The NCEI Common Access Support Service is only available via HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) following Federal government policy. Requests use HTTP 1.1 GET request and results are formatted as JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) that contains a results array property.
