The service provides a record of fossils found and documented, including their locations, the organisms represented, and their living environment at the time when they were alive. It compiles paleobiology information to document plant and animal life at specific points in space and time. Information about individual fossils and species is supported by broader taxonomic information.
API methods support HTTP GET requests for fossil occurrences documenting presence of an organism, or a distinctive part of an organism, identified with a location and timeframe. The API gives access to records compliant with the XML format of the Species 2000 Catalogue of Life to provide taxonomic, stratigraphic, geologic, and geochronological data along with records of particular fossils and organisms.
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.
