In Open City Agora you can create views that mix several layers of information from different sources including Open Data and Google Places. You can create your own views with the available layers and share them with the community.
Open City Agora tries to solve the problem with the big amount of geolocalized data that is spread in different places, making possible to show them in one single view, giving extra values to the Places search.

Location information sharing has become a quick and easy way for people to effortlessly let friends or family know where they, where to meet or even how far away they are from a particular destination. For those with an ever-increasing mobile lifestyle, this kind of functionality can prove to be quite useful. Glympse is one of these location information tools that uses a dynamic map to update a user's whereabouts in real time. Glympse also provides the Glympse API that may be interesting to developers who want to include real time location sharing in their applications or websites.
Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Natural Language Processing, Transportation, Games, SQL, and DevOps. One highlight today is the PokéAPI, which can access a Pokémon database. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
When it comes to map mashups there's no doubt that Google Maps leads the way. On ProgrammableWeb we list 1,964 Google Maps mashups, almost four times as many as any other API. This popularity makes utilities built on top of Google Maps especially interesting, such as this contextual menu control, which pops up a menu when the user right clicks.
