Application Programming Interface
Java/Android APIAndroid API for Legal Land Converter (Java)
Conversions for DLS, PLSS, NTS and MGRS
This API started out as the backend for our Android java app, but over the last 12 years it has grown into a robust API that stands on it's own.
It features 1) output is that is easy to parse and 2) the API is a unified interface for all conversions.
GeoJSON is a data standard.
GIS tools and programming libraries can read GeoJSON.
For example "Sales Force" has been intergrated with our GeoJSON API.
What is an API?
API stands for Application Programming Interface.
An API is a set of clearly defined methods that allows 2 computers to talk to each other.
Your application sends data to the legal land server and gets back results.
The results are then combined with your data and further processed by your applications to deliver what you need.
This is all done quickly and automatically by the computers, without the error and expense of rekeying data.
