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.
We've previously covered 3 free to geolocate any user. Today there's another option, with Quova offering its service for free for the first time. The simple API provides extensive geographic information with only a user's IP address (like 220.127.116.11) as input. The service was announced, along with a developer portal, at the Business of APIs conference in San Francisco.
Web and iPhone maps provider CloudMade can add a few more platforms to that list. Today it acquired German geospatial company One Step Ahead to incorporate Android, MeeGo and other mobile platforms to its suite of developer tools. CloudMade will also incorporate One Step Ahead's offline/online map technology, which passes a few map updates at a time.
