ok, its possible to implement, so have fun

To support also the WHY question:

That already exists.
HarvestMap "collects by multiple users without having to install different addons" Chests, Thieves Troves, Psijik portals and Harvest nodes.
Why not to ask Shinni if he would add a API ? If - and that's still open - if another addon would need that data.

Yes, that's a advantage HM doesn't support. Ok and how many webpages need that data ? For what? I havent found one. But let's say suddenly one will be created. For 1 user that effort ?

Yes, because except the support fact, users have no advantages.

More automatically than to click the bat file from harvestmap ? Very unlikely.
If Lore Books doesnt have this upload/sync actually, I would have started with its data.
