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.
At the The Next Web Hackathon in Amsterdam, developers played with a lot of new APIs. One that caught our attention is the Gbanga Puppetmaster API. Gbanga is a location-aware gaming platform, intended for use with games where walking around within the real world matter. It's released one game, Gbanga Famiglia, a mobile phone-based app using a theme of mafia families taking over areas and finding loot. Much more exciting, however, is its API, which allows for quests within Famiglia, and other, separate location-based games.
