MyDoorHandle allows users to create short, memorable weblinks that point to physical locations: DoorHandles. Instead of sharing physical addresses (which easily become outdated or incomplete), DoorHandles create a digital address which are easy to create and continually ensure accuracy. MyDoorHandle has now expanded its offering to include API access to DoorHandle creation. The API will allow third party developers to incorporate MyDoorHandle's many location based services.
Map mashup developers take note. Google has just announced that it has made several changes to the Google Maps base map, which now includes several new base layers as well as well as more detailed information.
