Open APIs and Mashups © PreventionWeb 2007 www.preventionweb.net Ideas that worked for us… Sujit Mohanty UNISDR Secretariat, Geneva

What we wanted to achieve? © PreventionWeb 2007 www.preventionweb.net To facilitate collaboration in the disaster reduction community. To avoid duplication of efforts in content collection and dissemination. To provide our users a way to generate and share their own content. To share content with other partners. To overlay data on partners data sources to have an integrated experience.

What’s open APIs and mashups? OpenAPI (Application Programming Interface) Sets of technologies that enable websites to interact with each other by using SOAP,REST, Javascript or any other web technology. Mashups A mashup is a website or web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated experience. Content used in mashups is typically sourced from a third party via a public interface or API . Source: Wikipedia
