Daily API RoundUp: Google Earth Engine, E-Coin, PopKey, SkyWay

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.

We've added six new APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in Mapping, Search, and Validation categories, among others. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.


Google Earth Engine has a large public data catalog of earth observation satellite imagery, elevation data, atmospheric data and more. The Google Earth Engine API lets users run algorithms on the georeferenced imagery and vectors and provides a Library of functions to apply to imagery for display & analysis.

This API is listed under the Search category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Search APIs.

Wherrelz provides IT, web development, and CRM solutions for businesses. The Wherrelz QR Code Generator API is Cloud based and keeps your data private. Use the API to quickly generate QR Codes for your business. We've categorized this API under the QR Codes category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of QR Codes APIs.

The NumVerify API allows developers a way to validate International and National phone numbers. Requests are made using a simple URL structure, and results are delivered in JSON format. We've categorized the NumVerify API under the Validation category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Validation APIs.

E-Coin is a Bitcoin debit card & multisig wallet that allows users to spend bitcoin anywhere. E-Coin Account API allows developers to set up accounts for users. An API account is required for use. We've categorized the ccc API under the Bitcoin category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Bitcoin APIs.

The SkyWay API allows developers to create real time apps with WebRTC features. The JavaScript version works with desktop devices, while the iOS & Android versions are compatible with mobiles. We've categorized the ccc API under the WebRTC category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of WebRTC APIs.
