The Fencer API is a geofence web service for mobile apps, web apps, and IoT. It offers "geofencing as a service". Quickly and easily, developers can create and manage geofences for applications or devices. In addition, they can query users' or devices' location relative to a geofence using the REST API.
This article is part of a 10-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2016. Mapping and Location APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
We've added 11 more APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Internet of Things, Identity, Payments, and Travel. One highlight today is the Fitch Finance Data API, which provides developers with archived, historical data for U.S. securities. Take a look at what's new.
