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 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.
