New Geo APIs - 12/31/12

Cellid API: The service provides geolocation information by detecting the nearest cellular phone access point and marking its location.
It was developed to provide location to a phone's systems without the need to access a global positioning system (GPS) signal. After identifying an antenna, it consults constantly updated databases of exact antenna locations, then provides those coordinates as the phone's approximate location.

API methods support submission of parameters identifying the mobile country code (MCC), mobile network code (MNC), and local area code. The API returns latitude and longitude coordinates along with a value indicating the antenna's coverage area as a proxy for location accuracy.

 

DocoDoco API: DocoDoco is an IP geolocation service allowing customers to present custom content based on user location. The DocoDoco API provides a RESTSful interface for customers to automate interaction with IP data. Responses may be returned in XML or JSON format.

MarketScout API: MarketScout is a corporate intelligence building platform that deals with complex data pulled from a variety of sources and aggregated as well as sorted with analytical tools. The service also utilizes a variety of interfaces for content delivery from RSS to mobile, tablet and web interfaces. Do research on an individual or company scale level.

The MarketScout API allows MarketScout users the ability to create analytic applications which utilize the MarketScount Analytics Engine and additionally, allows for historical analysis. Developers can tap into facets such as: Indicators (time series), Entities (People, Companies, Facilities), Projects (Energy, Infrastructure, Resources, Technology), and Geospatial (Mines, Ports, Processing Plants, Vital Infrastructure)

The API is REST based with responses formatted in JSON.

SIX Address Search API: The Spatial Information eXchange (SIX) is a resource provided by the government of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia. SIX is the official source for NSW geospatial information along with land and property information. The SIX Address Search API lets users retrieve addresses based on house number, road name, road type, suburb, post code, lot number, or house plan. This API uses SOAP calls issued in XML format.

Archiver API: Archiver is an index of spidered publicly available social media data searchable by keyword and location. The Archiver API aims to help developers to query the diverse sources of the archive and supports a variety of methods, including full-text search and user data.

California Restaurant Association Demographics API: The service provides management of customer segmentation records for member restaurants in California. The organization serves that state's 90,000+ restaurants which generate annual sales above $58 billion and employ more than 1.4 million people. One service to members is the ability to track market composition and demographics by location.

Dress Code Finder API: Dress Code Finder is an online directory of restaurant, bar, and club dress codes for over 70,000 establishments in the US. Dress Code Finder returns information about how casual or fancy dress codes are.

The Dress Code Finder API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Dress Code Finder with other applications. Some example API methods include searching dress codes by keywords, searching dress codes by location, and returning dress code details.

Eventlister.com API: Eventlister.com provides a large event directory for craft, festival, concert, art and expo shows. If you're a new or even experienced crafter, Eventlister.com provides you with the tools you need to exhibit and sell your crafts yourself: connecting you with local events and even with exhibitors looking for vendors in your area. You can also search through the indexed listings of various craft/art functions for a specified time or location.

The REST based Eventlister.com API allows third party sites and developers to utilize the event listings and messaging capabilities of the site when building their own applications or tools. Methods include: EventCategories, EventSearch, EventImage, EventWebsiteForwarder, MessageSend, MessageCheckStatus and more. Respones are formatted in XML.

Sector API: The service provides market definition and segmentation functions to help U.S. political candidates and advocacy groups target communications. By defining groups based on location, demographics, political positions and partisan preferences, even weather and other variables, it predicts receptivity to persuasive messaging and helps to guide promotional campaign decisions. It is also intended to help with commercial promotion by characterizing local markets in ways that guide communication strategies.

API methods support definition of a political profile typical of a location based on political partisanship within a state and congressional district. The five-level scale distinguishes between strong Democrat, Democrat, neutral, Republican, and strong Republican. Methods also support characterizing weather variations for a location to predict their effects on message content and timeliness.

Semiocast API: The Semiocast API allows users to analyze micro-messages, timelines, and feeds to get semantic information such as language, author location, topics, or sentiment. Users can also filter timelines and feeds by language and location or prepare semantics-based annotations for a Tweet.

Future functions will allow users to search networks with semantic, linguistic, and location constraints and to get global statistics about public messages.

SpotCrime API: The service provides maps at the neighborhood level representing data on criminal incidents from city and county police and other authorities. It provides alerts on incidents within specified areas and summary reports of crimes reported to police by area and time period.

API methods support retrieval of a list of crimes within a specified radius of a location defined as latitude and longitude. Returned results can be filtered for the maximum number of records, a date range, and type of crime. Returned data give the crime victim's name, the type of offense, the date and location, and a description provided by investigating officers or other authorities.
