At the OpenSource Summit here, looking at one of the winners of the NASA Space Apps challenge called EXO API: http://exoapi.com/. It's a basic API for searching and getting data, that's it. But the API is simple, it's documented well, it's approachable.
What if we developed the ESIP data API? Based on casting + OpenSearch, plus well-known formats/protocols, but all tied together in an API document page, with a few examples?
Would this make sense? Worth the time?
