Socrata was acquired by Tyler Technologies in 2018 and is now the Data and Insights division of Tyler. The platform is still powered by the same software formerly known as Socrata but you will see references to Data & Insights going forward.

The $query parameter allows you to combine multiple SoQL clauses together into a single parameter, for convenience. Similar to SQL, clauses must be specified in a specific order:

Note that unlike SQL, there is no FROM clause.

For example, you could combine $select and $where parameters together as follows:$query=SELECT location, magnitude WHERE magnitude > 4.2
