Daily API RoundUp: Capital One, Samsung SAMI, Simband, Sickweather, Market.Space, Ghost

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or Source Code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Sixteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Credit Cards, Health, and Wearable. Featured today are three APIs from Capital One, that were announced earlier today. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Capital One has launched a developer portal and three open APIs. Capital One Credit Offers API (beta) provides developers with tools to offer Capital One credit products to customers. Rewards API, returns Capital One customer rewards information and SwiftID API is available for the added security of two-factor Authentication. These APIs are listed under the Credit Cards category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Credit Cards APIs.

Samsung SAMI.io API is a data exchange Platform for IoT developers. It allows developers to push data from device sensors to the cloud, where SAMI collects and standardizes to make it available via APIs. The API is listed under the Internet of Things category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Internet of Things APIs.

Samsung Simband is a wearable device to monitor heart rate, blood pressure, and skin temperature. Developers can access data from SAMI, Samsung's data exchange platform via REST API. The API is written in C++. The Simband API is listed under the Wearable category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Wearable APIs.

NASA LANCE-MODIS API gives users access to a Library of geodata. LANCE (Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS) is a term used to denote the satellite imaging of geographical and atmospheric phenomenon (natural and man-made). Combined with MODIS (Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer). The LANCE MODIS API offers data and imagery from satellites allowing for Near Real-Time (NRT) observation and data acquisition.

NASA Outgassing Db API is a dataset of materials intended for spacecraft use. The dataset is a compilation of information obtained from the Goddard Space Flight Center, the Stanford Research Institute, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

NASA Satellite Situation Center (SSC) API gives users access to tools and data related to space sciences including: space physics data, data for rockets and satellites, data concerning heliophysics and several others. The SSC API was created by the NASA/GSFC Space Physics Data Facility (SPDF) and the National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC) with the express intent of helping to promote collaborative research across disciplines. SSC’s primary purpose is to track and predict geocentric spacecraft location while also providing a variety of relevant empirical data, mappings, and data analysis.
