Developers working with Google's next generation of its popular mapping API (our Google Maps API Profile) will be pleased to learn that some new features have been added to the API. Since its initial release a little less than a year ago, v3 of the Google Maps API has steadily been growing in terms of features and functionality. The latest addition of features are three new "layer classes" that make it dead simple to add KML (or GeoRSS), traffic, or bike routes as overlays on a Google Map.
Apiip, a provider of IP location data services and technology, has announced enhancements to the company’s IP to location API. Customers will now be able to process over one million requests per month. Using this API, developers are able to determine city, location, region, country, and more.
