The Sesame Name Resolver allows users to query several databases simultaneously with the name of an astronomical object. It retrieves and displays information such as the type of object in question and its J2000 position. The databases queried are Simbad, NED, and VizieR. The Sesame Name Resolver API allows developers to access this function programmatically using SOAP calls.
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.
