Single purpose API
API Mashups (1)
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.
Geeklist offers developers an online haven to present their work, connect with other developers, and gain credit for achievements. Geeklist's lean staff proudly states that Geeklist was "[b]uilt by developers, for developers... we make geeks lives better every day." The API allows developers to create their own applications and services and retrieve any needed data from the Geeklist database. The API has remained in private beta since the Geeklist's original launch, but will open to the public with a 48-hour hackathon from November 30 - December 3.
