Public data API

You don't need to set up a project to work with our public data. Get started right away with data sets some Open Humans members have generously chosen to share publicly!

Data is publicly listed on members' public profiles, and is also available through our Public Data API. It's very easy to use – because the API only returns public data, no authentication is required.

Users of the API are expected to follow our guidelines for using public data.
