Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Science.gov API. The Science.gov API allows mobile search and connection to 12 federal agencies, including NASA, the FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency, with data going back to 1990. In a nutshell, government data is publicly available in accessible data sets. To learn more about the Science.gov API visit the Science.gov API site as well as the Science.gov blog post.
There's more to our existence than we may be aware. The day we were born marks the date of other interesting and important events around the world, and it would be really cool to find out every bit of trivia surrounding a specific date at the click of a button. DayDetails is a free web service that allows the user to type in a specific date and find out all the recorded facts regarding that date. The site also provides the RESTful DayDetails API that allows developers to request specific date details.
