Mashups using the same API (11)
Taking pictures on your iPhone gives you a great deal of data embedded in to your photos. Location, camera type, exposure, even camera orientation. But what if you want more. Well, MetaPhoto (currently available on the iPhone) aims to further enrich your photos. Using the Urban Mapping API, MetaPhoto looks up a great deal of information about the area a photo was taken and adds it to the photos header.
Factual Inc, a company founded by ex-Googler Gil Elbaz that is creating a collaborative data platform, announced extensions to its Factual APIs today that are aimed at improving the ability to target advertising and provide other geo-based capabilities in mobile applications. The three new APIs, Geopulse, Reverse Geocoder, and World Geographies, fill gaps and extend the scope of Factual’s API portfolio. But the way that Factual thinks about its APIs also holds lessons for anyone who is mapping out an API strategy of their own.
Very little has been happening on the GM API front lately beyond plans for connected cars announced in January. But that quiet period could signal the retooling before the storm. Programmableweb's Janet Wagner wrote a three-part series earlier in June, making it clear that changes are coming from every auto manufacturer. One indication: our API directory lists 17 APIs under "vehicle." The GM APIs cover features everyone would expect, from audio streaming to location data. But GM's plans extend far beyond that.
