The service provides place names for geographic locations as specified in the Faceted Application of Subject Terminology (FAST) list of subject headings. That list adapts the authoritative subject headings from the U.S. Library of Congress (LCSH) for simplified application of complex rules. The streamlined structure allows rigorous application of standard terminology across large volumes of materials within manageable workflows. The service applies a subset of those terms identifying places by standard names based on location coordinates.
API methods accept one or more locations based on latitude and longitude plus a radius specifying the size of the region of interest. The API returns the applicable term(s) from the FAST list.
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.
