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 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.
