New APIs: Storage, Wikis and Photos

Time for a quick roundup of some of the more interesting APIs recently listed here. This includes a storage service (as noted here earlier this week, storage in cloud via an API can be a profitable utility service), a Wikipedia wrapper, a US government-supplied service, another photo service, and others.

  • Omnidrive API: The very useful "universal storage platform" now offers this REST-based API.
  • USGS Elevation API: Send a latitude and longitude to this US Geological Survey service and get back the elevation.
  • FUTEF Wikipedia API: A small independent service that wraps Wikipedia via an API. Returns data in JSON format.
  • Phanfare API: The Phanfare photo service offers this rich API for accessing their services.
