Mashups using the same API (2575)
Where were you when Hurricane Sandy hit, and what were you doing? If you're like many other ProgrammableWeb readers, you weren't watching news reports on TV--you were using social media to keep tabs on your friends and family, and taking advantage of the vast amounts of data available on the Internet to make sense of the situation. Below, a round-up of how Twitter and other online resources helped people get through the record-breaking "super storm."
Google has just announced the addition of a valuable new feature for the Google Maps API (the most popular API in our API directory): reverse geocoding. If you are not familiar with geocoding, it is the process of converting an address into a latitude/longitude pair. Likewise, reverse geocoding is the process of converting a latitude/longitude pair into an address. Developers using the Google Maps API have had access to geocoding since its release in June 2006, and geocoding has been integrated with many of the map mashups developed with this API.
The Independent Online Distribution Alliance (IODA) has just announced its IODA Open API, currently in beta. The API offers many of the typical resources that you would expect from a music metadata service, with a few extra goodies like these album attributes: UPC code and primary label. Comparing album API results between IODA Open and iTunes, IODA is packing a lot more information into the response.
