Daily API RoundUp: NearMap, Scurri, ShipNerd, Cloudprinter

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.

Ten APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Mapping, eCommerce, and Holidays. Featured today are several APIs for Cloudprinter.com custom printing solutions and an API for ShipNerd shipping services. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

NearMap provides aerial imagery technology and location data technology (such as the image below). The NearMap Panorama Tile API returns data to create PhotoMapa, which are created by splitting a pyramid of 256x256-pixel map tiles at multiple zoom levels. An application typically downloads a collection of adjacent tiles to cover a given region. The NearMap Panorama Tile API is listed under the Mapping category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Mapping APIs.

Cloudprinter allows users to create printed products from their own content or application. The platform provides several APIs for application integration, which we have added to our Printing category. They are as follows:

Cloudprinter Core API allows users to create and manage printed products and print orders from a user's content or application.

Cloudprinter CloudSignal API includes methods for managing order received and accepted by the production, production that has started for an item, production that is completed for an item and more.

Cloudprinter Order JSON API provides a way to deliver order information from Cloudprinter to a production with a JSON document.

Cloudprinter Order XML API provides a way to deliver order information from Cloudprinter to a production with an XML document.

Cloudprinter Cloudpublish API provides a way to manage orders by sending the ISBN or book reference from an application to the API without the need to submit the print files.

Cloudprinter CloudSignal Webhooks API provides a way to receive notifications for printed items throughout the production cycle.
