Daily API RoundUp: UKMap, ExoClick, Buzzlogix, Tango Card, Skyscanner

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 several APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in categories such as Mapping, Rewards, Science, and Manufacturing. Other highlights include several APIs from Skyscanner, which provides a travel search engine that returns flight prices, flight comparisons and other information for hundreds of airlines. Here's a look at what's new.

APIs

The UKMap, provided by The GeoInformation Group, can display over 100 million items including buildings, roads, fences, heights, trees, points of interest, addresses, shopping centers, aerial photos, digital terrain data, and more. The UKMap API allows developers to integrate UKMap's detailed, large-scale maps of Greater London into their own apps.

We've categorized the UKMap API under the Mapping category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Mapping APIs.

ExoClick is an advertising network for web and mobile channels. The ExoClick API allows developers to create, copy, and modify ad campaigns. The API can also be used to get statistics on browsers, carriers, categories, countries, dates, devices, hours, languages, operating systems, sites, and variations. We've listed this API under the Advertising category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Advertising APIs.

Tango Card develops tech to improve business reward programs. The Tango Card RaaS offers an incentive platform that can be integrated to existing apps. It can be used to send digital gift cards on demand for a specific business. This RESTful API responds in JSON. This API is listed under the Rewards category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Rewards APIs.

CicerTransDB is a database for Chickpea Transcription factors. It is a unified portal for various applications and provides users with a platform for the study of chickpeas. The CicerTransDB API is a RESTful URL API that is used for the retrieval of sequences and features from CicerTransDB. We've categorized this API under the Science category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Science APIs.

Buzzlogix Text Analysis API uses Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning to allow developers to enable users to predict consumer behavior. Use the API for sentiment analysis, Twitter sentiment, subjectivity analysis, keyword and entity extraction, classification and more. The Buzzlogix API is listed under the Natural Language Processing category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Natural Language Processing APIs.

Outbound Solutions delivers software tools for customer messaging. The Outbound API offers an adaptive email and SMS service that can be integrated with existing applications. This platform sends messages based on a customer's actions. This API requires an API key. We've categorized this API under the Messaging category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Messaging APIs.

Senvol Database is an industrial additive manufacturing machines and materials database. The Senvol Database API gives developers access to the raw data, ability to manipulate data, and automatic updates when new data is added. See the company's website for details on licensing options. We've categorized the Senvol Database API under the Manufacturing category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Manufacturing APIs.

Skyscanner is a travel search engine for flights and instant comparisons for car hire and hotels. Three APIs have recently been added to the directory for use with the service. Skyscanner Hotels API enables developers to allow users to get hotel suggestions based on user input. The returned results contain entityId's to be passed as query parameters to the Hotels Price List service. Skyscanner Car Hire API allows developers to retrieve live prices for car hire providers by making requests to the Car Hire API. Developers can allow applications to retrieve live prices for car hire providers. The API allows search by courntry, currency, language and more. Skyscanner Browse Cache API allows developers to access to an aggregated view of flight and price data for origins or destinations over many time frames, returning the least expensive quotes where available. We've listed these APIs under the Travel category. See ProgrammableWeb's's complete list of Travel APIs.
