Complete list with 425 time zones for all countries in the world. It provides the time zone versus the GMT / UTC reference and also DST - Daylight Savings Time.
The present dataset provides all the timezones of the world and of all countries. Also, it include Day Light Savings time-zones. As the world has a lot of surface area, so the time at every point of the world has different values depending on the angle it gets from the sun. This is the reason why the world has been divided into 24 equal parts. Each of these parts is known as a time zone.
The example below is helpful to better understand the database structure:
For making the time zones the world was divided into different parts. The main purpose of this division is to provide an idea about the time in different parts of the world. This is because some people have to contact other people present in the other parts of the world. While the others have to travel by themselves. As time all over the world is different, people used to face different types of inconvenience. But as the time zones were introduced, people know the exact time in other parts of the world. This saved many from the inconvenience.
There are several methods of calculating the time zones. Here we will discuss some of them.
This is a point in the world that is located at the exact center of the planet. This is used as a reference location to calculate the time zone for different locations.
This is a method of calculating the time zone on the base of the rotation of the planet.
This is a method of calculating the time zone that is based on atomic clocks. Here we will provide you with the time zones of all the countries based on the GMT model. The time zones are mentioned in the table below.
Below steps will show you how dataset hub works.
This is the step that includes creating your free account. Here you can import your CSV or JSON files for publishing your database. This importing and publishing procedure can only be done after you have created your account and database for free.
This is the step where you need to connect your application to the public databases, and you can fetch any data in a matter of minutes.
This is the part where you can visit the publishers’ page and there to open the issues and interesting projects. About these projects, you can also join different teams.
This phase has all the databases generated automatically using the Rest and GraphQL. Now you can use these APIs to consume data.
All data here is free. For the pricing packages, you can visit the pricing page to get more information.
Whenever you make a request to the database from the application to get any information using the SDKs and the APIs of the application, this whole process is called an API request.
Some examples of the API request are listed below.
We hope this guide will help you understand everything you need to know about time zone.
