ACTIVE Network 

Campgrounds API

The Campground APIs, backed by Reserve America's database, provide access to campground data for 97% of the US and Canada's national and state/provincial parks.  With it, developers can search for campgrounds that meet specified criteria. For example, they can search for available campgrounds with horse sites in the state of California, or campgrounds in Maine that allow pets.

This API features two concepts, campground and campsite.  Campgrounds are generally situated inside state or national parks and consist of one or more campsites.

Metawatch Developer center

Meta Watch is a developer-friendly smartwatch used to heighten user engagement and drive app usage. Meta Watch, when paired with iOS (4S) or Android-based smart phones, enable new kinds of glanceable interactions. In the same way that glancing at a wristwatch is more simple than pulling out a pocket watch to check the time, glancing at Meta Watch is more convenient than pulling your phone out of a pocket or handbag to view alerts, notifications, and cloud-based information.
