Bing Maps Java SDK provides a Java wrapper to Microsoft's Bing Maps API. This allows developers to access the API's methods for searching for points of interest, getting driving directions, matching addresses to the map, and more. This project is currently open for adoption as the creator no longer has time to maintain it.
Want to make money from Flash map mashups? One new alternative comes from Lat49, the online ad network for interactive maps, who have just added support for integrating ads into Flash maps. As we covered last year, Lat49 enables map mashup developers to layer geographically relevant ads onto third party mapping platforms like Google Maps and Yahoo Maps. The contextual ads can be placed on top of and alongside the maps themselves. They also offer developers an API for finer control over the ads (details at our Lat49 API profile).
Everywhere you look, there's a map mashup for just about any recognized monument. Yet, those looking to find the location of graves in the U.S. Arlington National Cemetery won't find such a mashup. There are some things that come close, but nothing that utilizes a mapping API. What's more, it seems the cemetery itself is stuck in the past when it comes to organizing its own information.
