Mashups using the same API (2564)
Canada’s Yellow Pages Group (YPG) is launching a new developer ecosystem to support and stimulate startup innovation in the local search and location based services market, including a certified developer program and four ways to monetize applications. The new developer ecosystem comes partly from the group's work with hackfests. “We got tired of seeing all these great ideas die after the hack, we wanted to make sure these potential local search apps were brought to market," YPG's Bradley Wing said. YPG understands the YellowAPI is a natural extension of its existing business model, and extends the reach of its advertisers by feeding their listings through 3rd parties applications built on the platform.
You may remember our earlier post on Yahoo Placemaker, a new 'geo-enrichment' platform that includes an API (our Placemaker API Profile) that can be used to make applications and data sets location-aware by determining the 'whereness' of unstructured content. Now, Yahoo developer evangelist Christian Heilmann has released GeoMaker, a new app that makes it dead simple to use the Placemaker API with any web site.
Planning a trip, whether just down the road or into the next city, normally revolves around the distance of the desired location. It's common practice to search for the distance between two points on a map, then take a rough guess as to how long it will actually take to get there. But we all know that distance isn't the only factor to consider. What about mode of transport, peak traffic hours or alternate routes? All these can dramatically affect how long it actually takes to get to your destination. This post will discuss how iGeolise's Travel Time and the Travel Time API changes the way people search and the results that are produced.
