The service provides information of interest to local audiences. It gives access to separate content databases related to events, companies, topics, and general content such as reviews, how-to articles, etc. The information is available to be incorporated on websites and applications targeting specific local areas, giving content relevant to the audiences there.
API methods support retrieval of company listings, event updates, topic guides, and general content tagged as applicable to a particular location. Requests specify location and the distance around it, then the APIs return any matching content from the provider's database.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial 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.
