Mashups using the same API (2721)

MapQuest's recent entree into mobile developer tools is an interesting one. Choosing Android over iPhone means going toe to toe with Google, a familiar competitor to MapQuest on the mapping front. Mapping is logically MapQuest's turf. The company was helping people find directions online before Larry and Sergey were even in graduate school, let alone leaving to found Google. Of course, another way of looking at it is that Android is in line with MapQuest's latest push to open up mapping data.
It used to be you could change anything layered on top of a map, but you couldn't change the underlying map itself. Now you have several options for changing the color palette and the visibility of different objects that make up your base map. The options vary on the amount you can customize and how much work is required. But all three of these APIs can have you map scripting with style.
Developers have seen the value of mapping APIs. Look no further than our list of map mashups for proof that there's a lot of value in maps to visualize location data. But how useful are web maps to a humanitarian organization? When you're working in more than 30 countries, as MercyCorps is, perhaps the answer is obvious.
