Mashups using the same API (2577)
Online running log service with local search and sharing using Google maps. Running log has nice graphing features.
Fun YQL hack to display images from The Big Picture on a map.
Mashup combines EPA EGRID 2006 database with Google Maps to provide a search interface for displaying state-by-state power plants and their associated emissions and generation information.
Years ago most schoolchildren in the US "knew" that if you dig a hole straight down through the earth you end-up in China. But of course that's not true, no matter where you are in the US. From nearly anywhere in the contiguous 48 states you end-up in the Indian Ocean.
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.
