The Planet OS API provides access to a growing catalog of Earth data from the world's most respected providers. Developers, researchers, and climate specialists can integrate environmental data into applications, analyses, and other data-driven solutions. The RESTful API requires an API key to make requests and is accessible for free with a basic account. Planet OS focuses on collecting earth, environment, weather and climate data through IoT sensors.
Proving that it's the personal touches that matter, Planet OS goes the extra mile of dynamically populating its API documentation with details that relate to the identity of the developer (so long as they are logged in while viewing that documentation). Wouldn't it be great if more API docs it too?
Six APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory categories including Software-as-a-Service, Weather, Photos, and Tasks. Also new to the directory are SDKs for Shapeways 3D printing service and mnubo IoT predictive analytics. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
