Today's roundup of recent mashups looks at those taking advantage of APIs that use location data to power their services. These mashups help users get directions, recommend places to go, provide real-time traffic information and even let users follow places as opposed to following people or topics. These mashups make use of popular APIs such as Google Maps, foursquare, Twitter and Facebook.
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?
