Duncan Edwards talks about developing Application Programming Interfaces for datasets at the Institute for Development studies.

“You can have a greater impact with research knowledge if people are able to contextualise it and place it in spaces they already own.”

By using APIs datasets become available programmatically to other organisations where they can be re-visualised, repurposed and reused.
