XML access to ATC bookings

Post by administrator » Sun Aug 12, 2007 7:22 am

You can download the upcoming bookings in XML format for presenting on your website using the following link:

http://vatbook.euroutepro.com/xml.php?fir=EPWW

Replace EPWW with your FIR name. Please cache the file and avoid downloading it every time someone views your website.

It looks like there is a limitation of days in the future beeing displayed.

We have curently 3 bookings for the 6th of June. I can see them in vroute but not in the XML output.

How many days in the future are displayed in the XML output & is there a way to show all bookings w/o a limitation?

There's a limit of 14 days forward in the standard xml.php interface.

There's a newer version available at http://vatbook.euroutepro.com/xml2.php?fir=EPWW
which shows data in a slightly different structure, including both ATC and flights. I increased the time range there to 6 months in advance. I prefer to keep some time limit in place, to avoid people booking 2080 by spelling accident and showing it till the end of our civilisation (or the end of VATBOOK, whichever comes first).

How's about one for specific IDs? It would be great to show (on my own personal website) my ATC and flight bookings for vRoute.

Or on a Member Detail Page, good Idea!

Or maybe it would be more interesting to do something like vatsimindicators.net including booking info?
