Hope this is not off-topic as asking for data-sources.

I am developing an app for flights booking and status, I have everything ready but I would like to have an image displaying for each major city in the world e.g:

User searches Rome, show enter image description here , San Francisco enter image description here and so on...

Obviously each image should be of the same height and width.

So is there some database/API-service which I can use to retrieve those images using the city code (Metropolitan Area) e.g. ROM for Rome, QSF for San Francisco or airport code e.g. JFK for John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York (US), LCY for London City Airport in London (UK)?

Note: If you know an API-service I need it to be in JSON, instead if you know a DB it must be MySQL or SQL based

  • I started using the following API, I found it pretty good although the choice of cities is limited and some of the images are not of the highest quality: developers.teleport.org/api/getting_started/#photos_ua – tutak Jan 22 '17 at 7:51

  • Di niente! Answer posted. – tutak Jan 22 '17 at 19:51

Check out Teleport API. Some of the images are not of great quality and choice of cities is limited but definitely worth a shot.
