Data Science Toolkit is a site that offers a free collection of open data sets and open-source tools for data science. The suite of tools include the following: *Geodict *Text to Places *IP Address to Coordinates *Street Address to Coordinates *Coordinates to Politics *File to Text *Text to Sentences *HTML to Text *HTML to Story *Text to People The APIs use RESTful protocol and responses are formatted in JSON.
It's a fact: scientists and researchers that work in physical science, Earth science, life science, computer science and any other scientific discipline have benefited from Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs. This article highlights the top Science APIs in the ProgrammableWeb directory.
Almost every app that uses a mapping API needs latitude/longitude points. To get geocodes you need to convert an address to a point on the earth. That's where you'll need one of the 54 geocoding APIs in our directory. This post covers seven free geocoders and compares them on several aspects.
