Anyone who lives in even a smaller city knows the importance of neighborhoods. Portland (where I live), for example, is really more like a collection of many connected small towns. Each has its own handful of coffee shops and restaurants. The people behind GeoReach API (our GeoReach API profile) understand this. The API provides neighborhood boundaries, along with local content.
Some of life's biggest sources of frustration often seem trivial. Take, for instance, the process of finding a parking spot. When you can't find one, few things can be more stressful. Fortunately, one company is using technology in an effort to eradicate parking nightmares. California-based Streetline has partnered with cities, universities, parking garages and transit agencies in the United States and internationally to build a large, smart parking network that helps those partners increase efficiency.
