A simple Perl wrapper around the Google Maps API. It allows you to easily create maps with markers, polylines and information windows. You can now look up locations around the world without having to install a local database.
LocationGenome is inspired by Pandora’s effort to map out the music genome, which seeks to identify, categorize, tag, and recommend music. LocationGenome would like to do the same thing for places that you might want to visit. The example offered on its site explains the obvious relation to some between organic food groceries, vitamin stores, and vegetarian restaurants. The LocationGenome API aims to help your application take advantage of this type of cross category theme.
