Data Trusted by the World

Time and Date calculations and algorithms are based on the IANA time zone database, the authoritative source for time zone changes worldwide.

Our Time APIs enhance this data — allowing you to find the matching time zone for any geographic location on Earth.

Our Time APIs allow for an instant update on any time zone changes or changes in Daylight Saving Time, seamlessly integrated into your systems.


While other time zone services may also list your country, our Time API offers two distinct advantages:

(1) You can query your exact location—and any location on earth—by using geo-coordinates. This means you will get the exact answer you are looking for.

(2) Our time zone database is always kept up-to-date, even with last-minute DST changes. Those changes are immediately available in our API and allow for an accurate, realistic view of time zones and times everywhere on Earth.

While our database does cover years before 1970, the coverage is not complete. Some changes were local and not well recorded, making it very hard to reliably research time zone changes before 1970.

You can query for your location using geographical coordinates, IATA/ICAO airport codes, and location IDs from our database. Querying by zip code is not possible at this time.

You can find a list of our location identifiers here: Available Locations.
