The service is part of the Spatial Information Services Stack (SISS) devoted to promoting interoperability among mapping information systems, including implementations by Australian government agencies. This function establishes an interface for integrating descriptive vocabularies to standardize terminology use, primarily via machine-to-machine sharing of HTTP links representing terms. A human interface is also provided, but that function is secondary to API-based exchanges of data.
API methods support submission of queries for geospatial terms to the service, which returns standard versions and variants matching the request. Methods indicate semantic equivalence or other relationships between terms managed within the vocabulary.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
