Today's roundup of recent mashups looks at those taking advantage of APIs that use location data to power their services. These mashups help users get directions, recommend places to go, provide real-time traffic information and even let users follow places as opposed to following people or topics. These mashups make use of popular APIs such as Google Maps, foursquare, Twitter and Facebook.
Though Google Maps may still be the choice of most developers, Bing continues to be a contender. Microsoft evangelist Chris Pendleton points out a new Weather.com feature and mentions it has used the service since back when it was called Virtual Earth (the switch only happened this June).
It's been over three months since Foursquare announced V2 of its Foursquare API. At the time the company announced that its original API would no longer exist sometime this year. With an announcement to its developer list, Foursquare has now made the exact date known: August 1, V1 will be no more.
