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 libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
