Marine Gazetteer Webservices
As a user or developer you can use the Marine Gazetteer webservices to feed your own application with the Marine Gazetteer standardized list of georeferenced marine place names and marine areas.
Currently, we support two methods of accessing the service:
REST (REpresentational State Transfer) is a simple stateless architecture that generally runs over HTTP.
SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is a way for a program running in one kind of operating system (such as Windows 2008) to communicate with a progam in the same or another kind of an operating system (such as Linux) by using the World Wide Web's Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and its Extensible Markup Language (XML) as the mechanisms for information exchange.
