eHive, online collection management system, grants access to its web-based organization system via the eHive API. Museums can integrate the API with third party applications, or developers can build mobile and custom apps that leverage eHive technology. eHive allows museums and curators to gather, share, and manage collections of all flavors and sizes directly through a web interface. API integration enables eHive users to gain traction through mobile, social, and existing networks.
Google has just announced the addition of a valuable new feature for the Google Maps API (the most popular API in our API directory): reverse geocoding. If you are not familiar with geocoding, it is the process of converting an address into a latitude/longitude pair. Likewise, reverse geocoding is the process of converting a latitude/longitude pair into an address. Developers using the Google Maps API have had access to geocoding since its release in June 2006, and geocoding has been integrated with many of the map mashups developed with this API.
