The Nice shared Open data portal Riviera and its partners is part of a larger project of interconnected and sustainable metropolis.
Nice Côte d'Azur is a metropolis with a strong dynamism, vision and proven experience in the adoption of innovative technologies.
In a few years, she became one of the leaders in the world of the new information and communications technology.
By providing their data on the shared Open Data portal, the Metropolis Nice Côte d'Azur and its partners want to encourage experimentation, innovation and the creation of services on their territory.
The idea is simple: allow third parties including developers and contractors to use certain data to imagine new ways to use them and to value by creating new mobile services and applications.
To register as a developer http://opendata.nicecotedazur.org/data/fr/user/login
You can then browse the data sets by thematic (some of them are geojson) http://opendata.nicecotedazur.org/data/dataset
And use an API to get for example the location of the parking's in the Nice City.
You can issue a GET request on the URL http://opendata.nicecotedazur.org/data/storage/f/2014-06-24T18%3A05%3A16.198Z/carto-parkings.geojson and get the location and name of the parkings in geojson.
