(2018 update: API DEFUNCT) The service provides marine mapping with configurable images showing depth and topographic characteristics of the world's oceans based on detailed bathymetric data. Requests to the Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) can be embedded to generate images of a global location and the surrounding ocean. Depth and terrain features of the ocean floor are represented as aids to marine navigation, exploration, and research.
API methods support submission of a global location, stated in the request as global tile row and column plus zoom level. The API generates and returns a PNG image of the land and ocean floor topography at the specified location, represented as a digital terrain model with shaded relief and depth readings (soundings).
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.
