About Science APIs
Science is a wide-reaching topic. From astronomy to zoology and everything in between, there are endless scientific things to explore and learn about the world around us. Science APIs help us quench our thirst for knowledge by bridging the gap between the queries we ask the applications on our devices and the companies and databases that have the answers.
What is a Science API?
A science application programming interface works like any other API by processing requests, retrieving information from the database source, and returning the requested information in an easily understood format.
Science is a significantly huge umbrella term. However, whether a developer wishes to build an app to showcase the varying rates of melting polar ice caps or one that allows for high school students to look up different facts about elements on the periodic table, there is an API for it.
How does a Science API work?
Once a developer decides on the type of application they wish to build and has found a source of reliable information that allows for API access, they program the interface to use parameters to search the database and return the requested information. These actions are usually accomplished in JSON or XML format for simplicity’s sake.
Who can benefit from Science APIs?
Any developer wishing to build an application relating to the sciences of any kind can benefit from science APIs. Likewise, web admins that host sites offering scientific information, be it astrology, biology, elemental, environmental, or any other number of topics, can benefit.
On the user end, anyone interested in scientific fields, whether for work, school, or just as a hobbyist, can avail the apps that utilize these types of APIs.
Why are Science APIs necessary?
Many people are old enough to remember the days of having to dust off their family’s encyclopedias or trudging to the nearest library to find out whatever scientific facts and figures they needed. Often, this information was outdated.
Today, we have up-to-date information in the palm of our hands, and many times, a science API is powering the application or site from which we access it.
What can you expect from a Science API?
APIs should protect both ends of the transfer of information, from the database it accesses to the user requesting it. Furthermore, a developer should ensure that the API is accessing an accurate and trustworthy source.
