The service provides access to lists and descriptions of web services and APIs. It attempts to catalog API-driven web services and semantically describe and link them, both by direct annotation and by automated analysis of the data available. It publishes descriptions of the services it catalogs as Linked Data to support discovery of those services.
API methods support search across web applications and identification of those that appear to document APIs that provide for interaction with web services. Methods allow annotation and description of the services discovered as well as automated analysis to determine the topics addressed and application functionality provided. The API gives access to RDF/XML descriptions that allow interaction with the catalog via Linked Data technologies.
