The NHTSA Product Information Catalog Vehicle Listing (vPIC) Application Programming Interface (API) provides different ways to gather information on Vehicles and their specifications. The vPIC Dataset is populated using the information submitted by the Motor Vehicle manufacturers through the 565 submittals. All the information on how a VIN is assigned by the manufacturer is captured in this catalog and used to decode a VIN and extract vehicle information.
Seventeen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Recognition, Chat, and Satellites. Highlights today include the GDELT Geo API for visualizing news keywords and the Sellbrite API for multi-channel eCommerce functions. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
