Finnish Vehicle Registration Searches is an API that allows users look up car number plates in Finland. For instance, users of the application would enter a car registration plate like "BZM - 184", and it would return that the number plate belongs to a 2009 VW Passat. 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.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Auto, Books and Booking. Also new to the directory are SDKs for Pandorabots bot building platform and TwitchTV social gaming platform. Here's a rundown of the new additions for developers to discover.
