This is a mash-up of Google Calendar, Google Maps with our church management software that tracks church events and locations of small groups that are meeting.
Free online search tool that takes advantage of Google geocoding service and third party Web Map Service with postcode and suburb boundary outlines.
Fun little mashup that shows many types of transportation to get you anywhere in the world. Uses HotelsCombined to show potential hotels and Google Maps to display routes.
It's funny that when I talk to people in the travel industry about mashups and APIs, most of them get glazed looks in their eyes. Throw in terms like location based services or geospatial awareness and I've lost them. What most of them don't realize is that the majority of the travel apps that are starting to come out, both online and for mobile are mashups that are relying on location awareness and geospatial data. Many of them, like Pocketvillage are a consumer interface on top of a variety of APIs all normalized for a single homogenous user experience. That's right, it's essentially a metasearch tool that pulls in content from a variety of sources including Viator, GetYourGuide, TourCMS, Rezgo, AirBnB, and many others. What differentiates a metasearch like Pocketvillage from other metasearch applications however, is the fact that with location based services enabled, Pocketvillage can return content based on your current location. The issue right now however is that not all geo data is equal. Not all APIs provide geolocation information and some return it based on different criteria.
Zinc.tv, an Internet video content management system, provides a suite of cloud based apps that allow users to create custom platforms that manage their internet television content. Over the past 4 years Zinc.tv has been steadily evolving into a system that goes beyond an end-user application. The company pays close attention to how users maneuver and creates tools to improve the user experience. One great tool is the Zinc.tv Remote Control API. This API helps developers integrate a user's remote control with Zinc’s online video functions.
Google will deprecate its Google Maps Data API in January, lending support instead to its popular new Google Fusion Tables API. Both store geographic data and allow developers to access it programmatically. The move to discontinue support of the Maps Data API does not affect the Google Maps API, the third version of which Google sent into production in May.
