Foursquare APIs Overview

The Foursquare APIs allow you to programmatically access Foursquare tools and services.

Foursquare APIs are divided into four distinct services: Places, Personalization, Geofences, and Studio Data. Each of these services has its own overview page in this documentation. These overview pages are divided into the individual APIs that make up the service. The documentation for each API is structured by endpoints. An endpoint is a specific method within an API that performs one action and is located at a specific URL.
