This assignment explored the creative use and development of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). In this project, I used two APIs: IP-API and Google Maps API. By creating an interactive and aesthetic interface, the user can input personal data (a birthdate) and receive that data as a new translation: a geographical location, as shown as an IP Address and its lat and lon coordinates on a map.

By using both APIs, new layers of complexity are created as one API calls on another API to receive strings of data. This project demonstrates the dynamic activity and efficiency of APIs that we use in our everyday technological adventures.
