Mashups using the same API (2)
Today's roundup of recent mashups looks at those taking advantage of APIs that use location data to power their services. These mashups help users get directions, recommend places to go, provide real-time traffic information and even let users follow places as opposed to following people or topics. These mashups make use of popular APIs such as Google Maps, foursquare, Twitter and Facebook.
Developers working with geo mashups should take note: geospatial startup FortiusOne has said that "geocoding should be a commodity" and has announced that it has released a new open source geocoder. If you're not familiar with geocoding, it is the process of assigning geographic coordinates to a location (typically an address or place name).
