Turns out, the National Park Service has an API to retrieve various pieces of data about the parks. I don’t know how widely this is used out in the world, so I imagine it is used mostly for internal apps within the agency.

NPS Webcams is a little web app I’ve thrown together to pull in the webcams endpoint from this API. This was built with React and the Next framework. It uses useContext to share data around the app and a variety of Next’s functions to handle routes and links. The app is still pretty rough, but far along enough that I could share. It still needs a better responsive design, aria properties, and some other little polishes.
