Mashups using the same API (2597)
With all of the new APIs opening-up these days and increasing emphasis on development in the cloud, it's timely that next week is Mashup Camp. Now in its eighth run, it is free and once again there will be lots going on. Over at InformationWeek, co-founder David Berlind gives a good summary of the event. And although over 350 people have signed-up there are still a few spots available.
The Earthquake Data Portal API provides event information in both SOAP and REST-style services. For SOAP, the information is provided in QuakeML format. For REST, information is in either QuakeML or JSON formats. Users can do Event Searches, review Latest Events and look at Event Details. Data on seismic waveforms and their velocity are also provided, including the ability to predict arrival times and locations after they have been detected. The API will identify the data providers within the Seismolink network.
Each week we see dozens of mashups added to our mashup directory and often these use and combine APIs that go beyond the typical Google Maps mashup of old. This past week three of the more innovative ones go beyond just maps by using APIs from Netflix, MyBlogLog and Flickr. Here's a quick overview:
