Mashups using the same API (2577)
On its Geo Developers Blog, Google announced time zone functionality for the Google Maps API. Developers around the globe have exhaled a sigh of relief, as time zone functionality has either kept them up at night, required extensive programming, or remained just a bit outside of an apps functionality because it wasn't mandatory (but sure would have been nice).
Though Google Maps may still be the choice of most developers, Bing continues to be a contender. Microsoft evangelist Chris Pendleton points out a new Weather.com feature and mentions it has used the service since back when it was called Virtual Earth (the switch only happened this June).
Developers have seen the value of mapping APIs. Look no further than our list of map mashups for proof that there's a lot of value in maps to visualize location data. But how useful are web maps to a humanitarian organization? When you're working in more than 30 countries, as MercyCorps is, perhaps the answer is obvious.
