The Google Static Maps API (our Google Static Maps API Profile) is quite popular with developers looking for a relatively lightweight method of including Google Maps as rapidly-loading images on web sites.

Want to make money from Flash map mashups? One new alternative comes from Lat49, the online ad network for interactive maps, who have just added support for integrating ads into Flash maps. As we covered last year, Lat49 enables map mashup developers to layer geographically relevant ads onto third party mapping platforms like Google Maps and Yahoo Maps. The contextual ads can be placed on top of and alongside the maps themselves. They also offer developers an API for finer control over the ads (details at our Lat49 API profile).
For several years millions have shared the places they've been using the Where I've Been website and Facebook application. The site also has an API (our Where I've Been API profile), which allows for much of the same functionality, such as searching countries, marking it visited and adding content such as a story or photo.
