It's funny that when I talk to people in the travel industry about mashups and APIs, most of them get glazed looks in their eyes. Throw in terms like location based services or geospatial awareness and I've lost them. What most of them don't realize is that the majority of the travel apps that are starting to come out, both online and for mobile are mashups that are relying on location awareness and geospatial data. Many of them, like Pocketvillage are a consumer interface on top of a variety of APIs all normalized for a single homogenous user experience. That's right, it's essentially a metasearch tool that pulls in content from a variety of sources including Viator, GetYourGuide, TourCMS, Rezgo, AirBnB, and many others. What differentiates a metasearch like Pocketvillage from other metasearch applications however, is the fact that with location based services enabled, Pocketvillage can return content based on your current location. The issue right now however is that not all geo data is equal. Not all APIs provide geolocation information and some return it based on different criteria.
UMap, provided by AFComponents, is a Flash ActionScript mapping API that allows developers to create custom map mashups with interactive data layers. Umap includes a variety of features including support for Flash/Flex versions, custom map tiles integration, KML support, and other capabilities (see our UMap API Profile for more).
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.
