Spatial data provider Maponics has released a new API that provides developers with access to several boundary data sets. Previously available as a beta release in February, the Maponics Spatial API (our Maponics API profile) provides access to carrier route, ZIP Code and neighborhood data for the United States.
The previously popular Google Earth API is being deprecated and is due to shut down in early 2016, signalling the end of access to its 3D imagery via the API. This post by Timothy Whitehead for Google Earth Blog looks at four applications that used to use the API, and what they are using now.
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.
