Mashups using the same API (2572)
When it comes to map mashups there's no doubt that Google Maps leads the way. On ProgrammableWeb we list 1,964 Google Maps mashups, almost four times as many as any other API. This popularity makes utilities built on top of Google Maps especially interesting, such as this contextual menu control, which pops up a menu when the user right clicks.
Take a look at the mashups that we publish on ProgrammableWeb and you can easily find services that will show you where you can see beautiful things. Maps that show the origin of photos from Instagram (Gramfeed) are becoming more and more popular. You can also find services that will tell you where you can taste great wine (AmericanWineryGuide). Today however, we will highlight a mapping service that focuses on where you can hear different sounds. I present to you, the Sound of the City API.
What API is absolutely the king of popularity? It is the Maps API Web Services, a collection of HTTP interfaces to Google services providing geographic data for maps applications. While my fellow writer, Janet blogged on the launch of its next generation at MorethanaMap.com , this article is more of a nuts and bolts look at the champion of all location APIs, hoping you catch a drift of how easy it is to add geo-coded location functionality in your app,website,product!
