The Bing REST Client is a library for accessing the Bing Maps and Bing Spatial APIs. Eventually, the library will enable users to access all of Bing's public APIs. The Bing REST Client works with .NET 4.5, Windows Phone 8, Windows 8.x, Android, and iOS.
There is a new wave of mapping APIs that are helping developers provide better location feedback to users. These "reverse geocoders" do more than just return an address. Instead, they provide meaningful names associated with the place, such as a business. In some cases, it gets even more specific.
The Bing Maps Time Zone API is now generally available. The API is a set of REST APIs designed to cover a variety of scenarios developers often deal with when it comes to time zones. Among the capabilities of the API are time zone conversion, list time zones, and find a time zone.
Garmin, a provider of GPS solutions, has announced the release of the Connect Courses API. The new API will allow developers to integrate with Garmin’s GPS devices and directly import course directions. The API has already been implemented in the extremely popular Strava and Komoot applications.
