API - Forecast data of allergenic pollen and spores in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands

This API allows access to the (current) week forecast data of allergenic pollen and spores in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands, publicly available at: https://lap.uab.cat/aerobiologia/en/forecast/catalunya, and https://lap.uab.cat/aerobiologia/en/forecast/balears

Information includes:

  • Names of the taxons, present in the forecast.
  • Forecast table keys.
  • Information about the aerobiological station.
  • Forecast date (start, end).
  • Current levels values.
  • Forecast values.

NOTE: The forecasts for Catalonia and for the Balearic Islands are made separately. In a given week, the taxons present in each forecast could be different between the forecast for Catalonia and the forecast for the Balearic Islands. The API format does not change, it is always the same.
