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.

By snapping a picture or using an existing image, the user has the option to customize the image with fun effects and add the finished product to their Facebook wall, email it to a friend or have it turned into a real postcard to be posted the same day.
