The Australia Car Registration API allows users look up car number plates in Australia. For instance, users of the application would enter a car registration plate like "DB - 6008", and it would return that the number plate belongs to a 2007 Toyota Camry. The API uses SOAP XML standard format (ASMX), ideal for .NET applications, but also suitable for PHP. More information about the API is available upon contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Auto, Music, Visualizations, and Monitoring. Featured today are CloudViz APIs which can be used to generate diagram images from DOT based graph descriptions. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
