Gowalla's rocky couple of years ended with a talent acquisition by Facebook of the former location-sharing app. Left in the dust were developers using the Gowalla API, including Ben Dodson and his field notes app for Gowalla. Dodson's latest creation is a Gowalla-inspired app that focuses just on the gaming elements rather than check-ins. And because Dodson remembers struggling with Gowalla's early API, the WallaBee API is available from the start. In fact, before the start.
The Google Maps API naturally has a rich history on ProgrammableWeb. Over the last year or so, Google has released additional maps-related APIs as separate services. One of the latest ones is the Google Distance Matrix API. This allows a developer to submit a matrix of locations, as origins and destinations, and get a list of the distances in return.
It may seem like lately geo APIs and mashups are getting a lot of coverage here on ProgrammableWeb, and for due reason: the geo API providers have been busy. From the release of v3 of the Google Maps API to the release of Yahoo!'s Placemaker "geo-enrichment" platform, there has been a lot of activity on the mapping front in the last few weeks.
