Mashups using the same API (2576)
As we sit here in Seattle fighting the snow and ice this week, I find myself looking at a lot of maps. Weather maps that show that the snow will, in fact continue to fall, neighborhood maps to see what others stuck at home are tweeting about, and even maps of warmer places because one can always dream. We took a look at some of our favorite mapping mashups over a year ago so today is a good time to see what is new.
Once you get beyond the most basic map mashups, you'll run into a problem with data storage and access, because you can't hard-code hundreds of markers. It's a problem that SimpleGeo wants to fix. And from the looks of their new platform, they've gone beyond expectations.
After nearly a year with two mapping platforms running in parallel, Google announced today that Google Maps V3 had graduated from Google Code Labs to become the primary maps API. Previously the newer version was recommended for mobile applications, the original reason behind the platform rewrite. With V3's graduation, V2 becomes deprecated, but will continue to work for now.
