DataDryad.org constitutes a general purpose repository of the data underlying scientific publications. DataDryad’s entire repository is discoverable through the Dryad DataONE API. The scientific and medical data of which the database is composed includes tables, spreadsheets, flatfiles, and more from peer-reviewed published papers.
For as long as people have been grabbing a board and trying to catch some waves, attempting to predict surf quality has been considered an art. Spitcast is trying to turn the art of prediction into the science of surf. Jack Mullis, the founder and developer of Spitcast, has been surfing for years. In 2005 he decided to combine his knowledge of surfing with his degree in Engineering Physics and create a unique algorithm that can predict future surf conditions by using Java and MySQL to cross reference NOAA regional weather data with observations at specific surf spots. This process has been shown to produce predictions accurate to 1 foot standard deviation. With the Spitcast API, this data can be transformed into custom applications.
The Integrated Earth Data Applications are accessible through a variety of APIs and clients, including REST, SOAP, an Open Geospacial Consortium, and an "Open Archive Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvest." These can be used to create maps, visualize data, plot sample positions and create customized data compilations. Funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the IEDA provides "data services for observational solid earth data from the Ocean, Earth, and Polar Sciences" to support the work of the geosciences community.
