Strand Map Service API

The Strand Map Service (SMS) provides an interactive graphical interface that helps K-12 teachers and students understand the relationships between science concepts. The Strand Maps demonstrate the connectedness of ideas and skills that students should develop over time. The maps illustrate learning goals for different grades, and the relationships between goals, for K-12 students across a range of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

The CSIP API that lets developers search through concept maps and find digital library resource supporting concept maps. Developers can access concept maps in number of formats e.g. XML, OWLLite, SVG, PDF, PNG, TIFF, and JPEG. Developers can use the CSIP to dynamically generate concept maps, fragment of concept maps and locate digital library resources supporting concept maps. The service supports textual as well as navigational searching over the concept maps. Developers can use textual search feature to locate appropriate concepts, list of concepts, concept maps and concept maps fragments. The navigational search allows for searching using relationships between concepts e.g. what is the pre-requisite to a given concept. The API uses RESTful calls and a JavaScript embed to include on your site.
