Terrorist Attacks API

Access terrorist attacks and many more events using PredictHQ’s API

Terror Alerts & Much More, All in One Place

Multiple data streams in just one API

When terrorist attacks happen out of the blue, their aftershocks ripple all over the rest of the world. It makes sense, then, that businesses should stay in the know about local, national and global terror attacks, just in case they need to make decisions quickly.

PredictHQ aggregates, cleanses, enriches, ranks and maintains millions of scheduled and unscheduled events, including terrorist attacks like bombings and shootings, into one intelligent API. We tell you what’s happening locally, nationally and globally, then rank each event numerically so you can filter from major to minor events and see at a glance which events your business needs to pay special attention to. Use our API to return details about thousands of events that could impact your business, or download and store your own local copy of events, so you can use them for data modeling and analysis, or enriching your own dataset to produce and sell derivative works.

Ranked Terror Events

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

Terror incidents may vary in severity, but businesses still have a responsibility - an obligation, even - to remain up with the play. PredictHQ’s RESTful API lets you lookup millions of scheduled and unscheduled global events including terrorist attacks, then tells you how important they are and helps you preempt how they could impact your business. Our ranking algorithm assigns a numerical rank to every single event, so you can filter from major to minor events, then make quick business decisions like halting marketing campaigns or sending pilots or cab drivers home.

With PredictHQ’s smart API, you can build customised applications that work seamlessly with our data and allow you to be prepared for the impact terrorist attacks could have on your business. Our API communicates with any platform, and our intelligent weighted algorithm associates event attributes and variables to every piece of information we store to help determine how important they are. Lookup events and get JSON responses. Integrate our data with any platform - and to make integrations even easier PredictHQ currently has Python and JavaScript SDKs available. We use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication, and access tokens are required to grant application access to the tools available on the API. Developers won’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources. Plus, our API is versioned for easier maintenance.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

Because terrorist attacks need to be handled carefully

Bombings and shootings don’t just impact the people in their vicinities; repercussions are felt all around the world. It’s important, then, that businesses are able to make good decisions quickly when a terrorist attack occurs.

PredictHQ pulls multiple data streams and third party APIs across more than 18 categories (and counting) into one intuitive information source, so all the terror attack data you need can be found in one convenient place. It’s not just about pulling and aggregating events into one central location though; PredictHQ virtually thinks for you too. We aggregate and maintain hundreds of different sources so you can spend more time on building integrations, data models, algorithms and forecasting tools. You can even search for events using IATA codes, a geographical radius, or multiple locations and categories simultaneously, so the next time a major terror attack occurs, you have all the tools you need to ensure your business isn’t impacted any more than it has to be.

You can’t prepare for what you don’t see coming
