The USNO Astronomical Applications API provides a way to query the Astronomical Applications Department for data and images. The API allows users to query the USNO calculators to integrate within a Web page or mobile application. This includes services to; generate a cylindrical map of the Earth, create a view of the Earth with daytime and nighttime areas shaded, compute the dates and times of a list of primary moon phases and more.
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.
