Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
While many are excited about live traffic data on firm ground, others have turned their attention to the other 3/4 of the earth. According to The Map Room, many ships are required to carry transponders to broadcast their location. The result is a lot of public marine data and the perfect situation for a classic map mashup.
Location is all the rage these days, especially in the mobile world. Geoloqi and its location-sharing Geoloqi API allow developers to easily integrate location awareness into their applications. Its Geofencing API is especially neat, as it allows developers to add triggers based on locations, time, and travel speed, or any combination of the three. It just launched a new site in an effort to reach out to more developers.
