This EONET REST API allows you access to layers that are mapped to categories within EONET and provides a category-specific list of layers. A Layer is a reference to a specific web service that can be used to produce imagery of a particular NASA data parameter. EONET is The Earth Observatory Natural Event Tracker, a prototype web service with the goal of: providing a curated source of continuously updated natural event metadata and providing a service that links those natural events to theme related web service-enabled image sources. NASA open data supports NASA’s scientists and engineers with information technology such as infusion, procurement, and future IT workforce development.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Astronomy, Stocks and Gambling. Highlights today include more NASA APIs, such as the Mars Trek API, which provides images from the popular Mars Trek interactive web portal. Here's a look at the new additions.
