Getting the Vue.js web app to display the data proved difficult at first until I discovered that the listed parameters were incorrectly labeled in the documentation. Longitude was titled Long in the documentation, but is actually lng for example when a developer uses Inspect in their Devtools on Chrome. The API documentation also had no mention of the data being in Coordinated Universal Time UTC, which was something that I had never seen or heard of before.
I looked over a list of free to use third-party APIs that were made available to all classmates and choose one that I could start by bootstrapping from an earlier project and a subject that interested me. My research consisted mostly of starting off with the API documentation in addition to having to research the concept of UTC to both understand what it is and how to convert the data into the users local time.
In summary, what I built was an online webapp that a user can use to enter in longitude and latitude coordinates to return the following: sunrise, sunset, and various other times relevant to the sun's cycle for that day.
