The Nicesi Location API provides three services: reverse geocoding, time zone and elevation. Reverse Geocoding turns geographic coordinates into place names. Location Timezone lets you get time zone info and Location Elevation provides digital elevation model data for locations (latitude/longitude) on the earth. The Nicesi API provides RESTful HTTP access to a large part of the functionality of Nicesi. API results are returned in JSON formats, with authentication using tokens, and API KEY via a key query parameter. Nicesi is an API Platform that supports RESTful and Custom APIs.
This segment of the past year's most clicked, shared and talked about APIs covers Mapping and Location services. Included are APIs for mapping routes specifically for electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles, APIs for mapping meteorology, as well as a few APIs for Drone mapping services.
Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Recreation, Events, and Documents. Highlights include an API for mountain bike trail information and an API for adding reverse geocoding and elevation data to applications. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
