This past week 13 new mashups were added to our mashup directory and 22 different APIs were used to build them. Some of the newer or less frequently seen APIs include Meaningtool and Ordnance Survey OpenSpace. The most often used APIs this week are Google Maps, Google Visualization, and Twitter. And the most commonly used types of APIs were Mapping (3 APIs, 6 mashups), Shopping (2 APIs, 3 mashups), Other (2 APIs, 3 mashups).
Having a trusted site for event information and registration is crucial to successful events and happy participants. The same way event goers rely on trusted ticket brokers to purchase their tickets from. MotorsportReg.com is that trusted identity for motorsport participants to register and list events in their respective categories. These categories include autocross, driving schools, HPDE, club races, test days and rallies organized by groups like the SCCA, BMW CCA, PCA, Audi Club, Miller Motorsports Park and Circuit of the Americas. In fact, the site currently has 350 plus registered organizations that periodically list upcoming events. Developers can leverage the event data through the MotorsportReg.com API. This week we will be taking a look at the MotorsportReg.com API and what recent mashups have been created leveraging MotorsportReg.com.
