The service retrieves information about representatives in the U.S. Congress and state legislatures for a location specified by latitude and longitude. Data returned include contact information, so an application can automatically route users directly to their legislative representatives to support calls for action as part of advocacy campaigns. Another use would be to target advocacy messages to specific legislative districts served by members casting key votes on an issue.
API methods accept latitude and longitude and return legislative district for both the U.S. House of Representatives and state legislative houses, as applicable. The service returns error messages for submissions without latitude/longitude data or for locations outside the United States.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code 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.
