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.
Here is some interesting news that may impact developers using the Google Maps API (our Google Maps API profile). Google has recently made a couple of updates to their terms of service and have posted the the new terms of service here. There was an initial update made in early November, but one that lead to some debate and confusion about a couple of points, which in turn to a subsequent update. The net result is that the terms of service have been streamlined and some previous restrictions have been removed, including a restriction on the use of Google Maps in desktop applications.
