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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code 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.
