AREDN node API?

Is there a programmatic way to DL all the nodes in the AREDN map (which I'm assuming is the source of truth)?
This is for a node pointing app I'm writing on iOS that'll allow you to use your phone to locate and point your antenna very accurately at another node.
Thanks.

The map is "fed" by a KML

The map is "fed" by a KML file (actually multiple files).
The links are at the bottom of the map page.

Well, the map is the truth

Well, the map is the truth for what is published to the internet.  For those that haven't published (either no internet or choose not to)  this might have to go through the sysinfo.json onboard each node:

http://localnode:8080/cgi-bin/sysinfo.json?hosts=1 and for each host in the JSON contact it to pull its GPS coordinates. (hosts=1 only needed on initial pull)
