Mashups using the same API (2564)
MapBox, builder of open source tools for map creation, has just won more than half a million dollars to focus it's development efforts on the OpenStreetMap project. This is a big win for the mapping community because this grant will further the development of the community at OpenStreetMap as well as strengthen the open source toolset that the MapBox team has been creating. This funding might also serve as a confidence boost for MapBox API consumers.
A little over a year ago, Google released a new product called Google Fusion Tables. Fusion Tables allows you to upload, merge, share, and visualize large tables of tabular data. Basically, we wanted to answer the question “I have a spreadsheet. I want to share it with people and create a map/bar chart/storyline/other visualization.” Google Spreadsheets, while powerful, couldn’t handle the 100 meg upload we allow for Fusion Tables. And, being Google, we also provided something for developers.
APIs have certainly enriched our lives. Thanks to some clever mashups, we are able to share and connect with nearly everyone and everything all over the planet. But what about the world right around you? How can APIs make your own town more connected and provide some rich services to its tax-paying citizens?
