thethings.iO Developer Center

Here you'll find everything you need to get started or go deep on developing IoT Products, Applications and Services with the thethings.iO IoT Platform.

Open Data

Our Platform allows you to tag a product as Open Data. When doing this, this product becomes part of thethings.iO's Open Data repository and can be accessed by anybody or anything with read only access rights.

If you want your things to be Open Data you can tag a product as Open Data when creating it.

You also have to declare which resources will be listed in your Open Data product via the Product Settings button.

Use Cases

  • Allow the community to access your data
  • Show a chart of your things on a public webpage
  • Play with the data from the others
  • Whatever you are thinking... ;)
