Urthecast Platform

The Urthecast Platform is a system of RESTful APIs, services, and tools that allows for fast, scalable access to Earth imagery, video, geospatial information and other data sets in order to build dynamic applications to monitor our ever-changing planet.

Google Earth Engine

The Google Earth Engine API allows developers to run algorithms on georeferenced imagery and vectors stored on Google's infrastructure. The Google Earth Engine API provides a library of functions which may be applied to imagery for display and analysis. Earth Engine's public data catalog contains a large amount of publicly available imagery.

DigitalGlobe Maps

The DigitalGlobe Maps API is a scalable, cloud-hosted solution that feeds beautiful, high-resolution map content straight into web or mobile applications. Developers can use the DigitalGlobe Maps API to access satellite, vector and terrain content as well as build captivating, location-based applications.


The Mapsense API allows developers to insert vector maps into their websites. This service is based on the Polymaps API and uses D3 for handling drawing and selection. Tiles are generated dynamically upon request, which means that users control exactly which features and properties are returned. With Mapsense, users are able to create interactive, data-driven maps using rich vector map data.


US Zip Code, County, City, and State Boundaries API: A simple API that will allow you to integrate multiple GeoJson US boundaries results into your apps and systems.

MasterCard Places

MasterCard Places API lets developers build applications using its location intelligence services, and by integrating its dataset. This API allows developers to have access to locations of different places across the US. The Places API is powered by "near-real-time, aggregated, anonymous transaction data."

Dansk Supermarked

The Dansk Supermarked API is a Danish Web API that provides geocoded store information. This includes store resources such as basic information, location, and hours for Dansk Supermarked stores: Netto, Føtex, Bilka and Salling in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Poland and UK. The API also can provide information for in-store events and can overall enrich applications with Dansk store data.


Using the GeoKoala API one can store GeoData/ GeoJson to GeoKoala's servers. Developers can then integrate this API into applications, Augmented Reality browsers, and major Geo Clients (such as GoogleEarth, and GPX clients). Data is stored in MongoDB. It is free and provides a unique set of tools for users to try.

University of Alicante Open Data

UAPI is an open data API for data reuse. UAPI provides a wealth of university data for study, research or reuseand for assisting in development of mashups and different apps. This public API is part of the project OpenData4U developed by the University of Alicante and the Vice-Rectorate of Information Technologies with the goal of opening university data to society.

Active Golf Tee Time

The Goft Tee Time API lets developers integrate their applications with its tee time database. With the API integrated, users of the applications will have access to tee time inventory and rates available on ActiveGolf.com. Users will be able to search for and present tee times and rates from courses throughout North America.
