Mashups using the same API (2583)
It's been a short time since Microsoft announced the release of Bing, their next generation search platform (with its own Bing API). Along with the name change, several of Microsoft's product offerings have also rebranded, including two core mapping products: Live Search Maps and Virtual Earth. This means that Virtual Earth API will be no more -- it is now officially called the Bing Maps API (we've added a new Bing Maps API profile).
Developers working with geo mashups should take note: geospatial startup FortiusOne has said that "geocoding should be a commodity" and has announced that it has released a new open source geocoder. If you're not familiar with geocoding, it is the process of assigning geographic coordinates to a location (typically an address or place name).
Following-up on yesterday's post on the best new mashups, here is another notable mashup from this past week, yesterday's Mashup of the Day: Gaiagi Driver. What is it? It's a mashed-up 3D driving simulator that uses a lot of web APIs across multiple windows to create a unique driving experience. Give it a starting and ending address and it follows the path created by the directions and shows your present position in four different views:
