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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
