Your local newspaper probably uses maps on its site. If it doesn't, it will soon. As newspapers look online for readership (and thus, revenue), they look for new ways to show information related to the places they cover.
It's funny that when I talk to people in the travel industry about mashups and APIs, most of them get glazed looks in their eyes. Throw in terms like location based services or geospatial awareness and I've lost them. What most of them don't realize is that the majority of the travel apps that are starting to come out, both online and for mobile are mashups that are relying on location awareness and geospatial data. Many of them, like Pocketvillage are a consumer interface on top of a variety of APIs all normalized for a single homogenous user experience. That's right, it's essentially a metasearch tool that pulls in content from a variety of sources including Viator, GetYourGuide, TourCMS, Rezgo, AirBnB, and many others. What differentiates a metasearch like Pocketvillage from other metasearch applications however, is the fact that with location based services enabled, Pocketvillage can return content based on your current location. The issue right now however is that not all geo data is equal. Not all APIs provide geolocation information and some return it based on different criteria.
The widespread adoption of mobile devices has led to an increasing demand for travel-related mobile apps. This article takes a look at the top 10 APIs in the travel category. Technology such as business expense tracking, travel deal search, travel performance rating and more is obtainable from APIs.
