The service provides a platform for neighborhood-specific, "hyper-local" news and information reporting. Designed to support websites for updates about community activities, it can also power widgets and feeds to integrate news into existing sites. Capabilities include mapping event reports and data summaries, such as local utility maintenance reports, crime statistics, and the like.
API methods support creating and retrieving news items, with location information tying them to a particular place. Methods also support listing places and locations, with search boundaries set by either a predetermined area or a random centerpoint and bounding circle of specified distance.
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.
