Data marketplace InfoChimps continues its march to API-ify its most useful, sliceable datasets. The latest is a bundle it calls the InfoChimps Geo APIs and it makes available some extremely interesting location data from both public and private sources. The company has created a location data schema to unify sources, which include several place databases, Wikipedia articles and Zillow neighborhood boundaries.
As we have noted, FourSquare has become an extremely popular way to share where you are. However, unlike yesterday's hot location-sharing app, BrightKite, FourSquare does not have the ability to share photos. Is this an oversight, or is it an opportunity to fill a void?
RentRent.org has announced the creation of an API that searches local Craigslist entries for rental properties including apartments and houses. This gives developers the ability to integrate rental searches with mapping applications and APIs (our RentRent API profile has details). [Note that RentRent.org is not associated with Craigslist.org.]
