The Mapbox-upload SDK is a NodeJS library for interfacing with the Mapbox upload API. The Mapbox Uploads API transforms geographic data into tilesets that can be used with maps and geographic applications. It normalizes projections and generates tiles at multiple zoom levels to make data viewable on the web. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers.
Fwix, the local information provider, has released its Fwix Location API at this week's Where 2.0 conference.
