A more interactive experience can help developers create engaging applications. This is the case of Bing Maps V7 Interactive SDK in AJAX, that presents alternatives to choose a virtual user experience. The SDK allows one to create maps with clickable logos, search boxes, and navigation bars. Users also can create maps with view selections such as bird's eye view, aerial view, and initial zoom. In addition to these preferences, users can access modules with traffic, directions, venue maps, navigation, search, and spatial data services.
It's been over three months since Foursquare announced V2 of its Foursquare API. At the time the company announced that its original API would no longer exist sometime this year. With an announcement to its developer list, Foursquare has now made the exact date known: August 1, V1 will be no more.
