The Global Environment Monitoring System (GEMS) is a multi-faceted water science center created by the United Nations Environment Programme. GEMS' goals are to improve global water quality monitoring and assessment abilities and to determine the status and trends of regional and global water quality. GEMStat is a global water quality database designed to provide access to surface and groundwater quality data and statistics collected by GEMS.
GEMStat provides two online services for accessing its data: the Web Feature Service and the Web Map Service. The Web Feature Service returns information on GEMS stations and the measurements they've taken. The Web Map Service provides maps of GEMS station locations. Both of these services are accessible programmatically using either SOAP or REST calls.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
