In addition to the 4 new APIs we profiled a few days ago, there were 4 more new APIs add to our API directory last week. These include a new API to get access to government data regarding the US Congress, an API that gets you access to a visual search engine for fashion products, a read-write API for geo-related services (which we wrote about last week in TownMe Launches Read/Write Location Data API), and a new semantic search API. Below are more details on each of these:
OpenCongress API: OpenCongress brings together official government data with news and blog coverage to give users the real story behind each bill. The OpenCongress API also developers to access all this data for their website or application.
Stylight API: Use the Stylight API to access a visual search engine for fashion products. For example, you could provide a search where someone could enter ‘hugo boss’ and your app then displays a picture of the result. Construct requests to the Stylight database and receive images, prices or sizes of several brands and products.
Yebol API: Yebol is a new semantic search engine that currently has 10 million search terms and growing. From the website: ” Yebol allows for a multi-dimensional search result instead of the normal one-dimensional search seen by most web search engines today. This provides a more accurate summary of top sites and categories; a wider array of related search terms; a longer and richer expansion for query results; and a deeper base of links and keywords in search result pages.”
