Foursquare just made the switch from using the Google Maps API, to joining the crowd-sourced, global OpenStreetMap movement. To do most of the heavy lifting, foursquare relied upon the still fairly new MapBox API.
If you've done much searching for locations using web tools--and who hasn't by now--you've likely discovered some errors along the way.
