BlockAvenue, location-based analytics company, has announced the release of its first BlockAvenue API. The API gives developers access to BlockAvenue's data (e.g. BlockScores, block reviews, neighborhood reviews, counts, etc.). BlockAvenue provides geolocation data on most neighborhoods across the US, often down to the block level. Its database grows everyday and BlockAvenue expects the API to push BlockAvenue towards its ultimate goal.
A new service for city planners and others requiring detailed demographic and regional data has a great way of accepting geographic input. Cubit uses the Google Maps API to determine the area in which its user is interested. Then, it queries its own data sources based on the path or shape the user selects.
