api.reegle.info: make your energy and climate content searchable - and findable - for free!

01-07-2013, Vienna, Austria

The reegle tagging API is a cost-free tagging service for those publishing online resources in the clean energy, climate and adaptation areas.  By tagging the terms in documents, the API makes your climate-, adaptation- and energy-related web content resources searchable – and findable – for free!

Three levels to explore: Demo, Upload, Implement

With the online Demo feature, you can cut and paste a document or sample text and then immediately see the results online, showing you the types of extraction that the service provides using your own real-life example.

The Upload and Tag Documents function moves you into the actual tagging of your resources, rather than just showing you an example.  It requires no technical expertise to implement – you just upload as many as 500 documents and then export and download the extracted results as a CSV file.  This is ideal for organisations without heavy in-house technical support.  The only requirement here is the free online registration.  

The Implement the API option is the full service, targeting  a techie audience who can actually integrate the API into your own web platform or app. You receive tags that help in structuring your content, and you can deepen your website’s content with suggestions of related documents from other online providers who have used the reegle Tagging API to index their own resources.  This Content Pool is growing quickly and provides an added value for your website’s users. 

The extraction of all tags is based on the custom-built reegle clean energy thesaurus, with a wide range of additional information available. This service is can index resources in the English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German languages. The reegle Tagging API returns the formats RDF/XML and JSON.  The full implementation also requires online registration.
