The limitation so far has been that users and developers usually have to wait for the big players like Google, Yahoo and Bing to add the relevant information to their maps. CloudMade has conveniently side stepped this issue by allowing its maps to be collaboratively edited, making it a kind of “Wikipedia for maps”. The results have been quite impressive, as TechCrunch reports.
One of the most powerful aspects of mashups is taking similar data from competing websites and providing a single place to examine the content. In this round-up of the best new mashups we'll look at three apps that aggregate data from multiple services. One looks at location check-ins, another at shared photos and another mashes photos with information about where they were taken.
