Mashups using the same API (2577)
MapQuest has launched another API on top of OpenStreetMap (OSM), the Wiki-like editable map of the world. The new search service provides geographic search results for any data added to OSM, such as streets or landmarks. Of note, the MapQuest API provides the service without any API Key requirements or rate limiting.
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).
At the The Next Web Hackathon in Amsterdam, developers played with a lot of new APIs. One that caught our attention is the Gbanga Puppetmaster API. Gbanga is a location-aware gaming platform, intended for use with games where walking around within the real world matter. It's released one game, Gbanga Famiglia, a mobile phone-based app using a theme of mafia families taking over areas and finding loot. Much more exciting, however, is its API, which allows for quests within Famiglia, and other, separate location-based games.
