The service provides geology data and mapping through a set of web services built on the MapService platform of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). That architecture exposes datasets to a number of OGC-compliant desktop clients as well as the service's own REST and SOAP APIs. Data include datasets for seismograph recordings and geological sample profiles from the System for Earth Sample Registration (SESAR).
API methods support queries against XML records of seismology datasets recording earthquakes and other geological events. Methods also support retrieval of analytical data for samples of rock, minerals, and other geological materials by universal identifiers created at the time the samples are collected. Methods for managing samples also allow uploading of new records documenting sample collections for users who have registered accounts with the service.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
