Topic: Useful new features

Looks like the new features that been talked about on the Gateway have been implemented. Here's a page showing data available from East Sussex. I like how there's an XML feed serving up a species list - very handy.

Re: Useful new features

The NBN Gateway development team are currently starting to develop a suite of web services. The initial focus will be to develop grid mapping and user defined polygon web services.

A smartgroup has been set providing documentation and for discussion http://www.smartgroups.com/groups/NBN_Services. If you are not already a member of the group, please do join. We would definitely welcome anybody willing to test the services.

Re: Useful new features

Thanks Richard, I've just joined. Looks like there's plenty going on. The Web Services Meeting - May 2005 in the vault is a good place to start for anyone wanting to catch up with what's been going on.

Tried to check in to that link but I get an "NBN Gateway Error".

Re: Useful new features

Gah, link-rot! One of the eternal gotchas in web design. Try this:

I suppose it still under development, so can be forgiven. Hope it doesn't break links like this in the future though.

Re: Useful new features

That fixed it! Thanks. Looks very useful. I have been too busy to really concentrate on the web services the gateway are providing, but I'm keen to integrate them into our data searches ASAIC.
