The Google Maps Android SDK for Work enhances support for the Google Maps Android API. The SDK is available as library and as Android SDK Manager. In the first option, developers can download as a static library in their devices, while in the second choice, they can follow a series of steps to complete the installation via Android Studio.
APIs have certainly enriched our lives. Thanks to some clever mashups, we are able to share and connect with nearly everyone and everything all over the planet. But what about the world right around you? How can APIs make your own town more connected and provide some rich services to its tax-paying citizens?
Our API directory now includes 61 geolocation APIs. The newest is the Onuma WFS API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the Panoramio API. We list 45 Panoramio mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of geolocation APIs.
Google has just announced the addition of a valuable new feature for the Google Maps API (the most popular API in our API directory): reverse geocoding. If you are not familiar with geocoding, it is the process of converting an address into a latitude/longitude pair. Likewise, reverse geocoding is the process of converting a latitude/longitude pair into an address. Developers using the Google Maps API have had access to geocoding since its release in June 2006, and geocoding has been integrated with many of the map mashups developed with this API.
