Our API directory now includes 42 environment APIs. The newest is the EnergyIQ. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the AMEE API. We list 4 AMEE mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of environment APIs.

In terms of the technical details, REST and XML lead the way. There are 26 environment REST APIs and 16 environment SOAP APIs. Our directory lists 33 environment XML APIs and 16 environment JSON APIs.

The most common tags within environment are 18 green environment APIs, 12 government environment APIs and 11 science environment APIs.

On the mashup side, we list 57 environment mashups. We named Car Emissions Calculator as mashup of the day in December.
