I am looking to pull information from this site (GIS Stack Exchange) via an API, similarly to the API that exists for Stack Exchange https://api.stackexchange.com/docs

My goal is to be able to access the following information:

  • Number of views per question
  • Count per tag description
  • Number of up votes for each question (i.e. popularity of question)
  • Ultimately I would like to do this temporally - showing the use of tags or questions over time (i.e. past 5 or 10 years)

I did a quick pull from the Stack Exchange API on the term GIS and there were minimal returns.

Is the GIS Stack Exchange information accessible from the Stack Exchange API?

One option to get data listed in your question is the Stack Exchange Data Explorer (SEDE). It is updated weekly.

More info about SEDE is available here.
