The USGS Science Information Services (SIS) is looking to create a short reference sheet about APIs.
The reference sheet will be used to answer questions that come in through "Contact USGS" or "Ask USGS" paths.
CDI Members helped to add information to this list in June 2020 and we reported the info back to SIS. If you have more additions, you can add or comment on this post, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This activity has the added benefit of sharing information about USGS APIs to the CDI community! Thank you for any info you can share!
