The OpenWeatherMap C SDK by Pebble Hacks allows developers to integrate the OpenWeatherMap API into their C applications. This SDK can be used to get weather descriptions, short descriptions, temperatures (in K, C, or F), and location names.
The XML-based open architecture, SOAP-based GPSit API allows you to integrate its GPS tracking system to focus on four main tasks: real time logistics, transit condition monitoring in cold chain shipping as well as regular transit, surveillance, and asset management. on the logistics front, using a battery-powered device with the GPSit Trackfusion platform can identify precisely where a shipment is, allowing for notification to customers of early shipments, rerouting goods to avoid delays caused by problems along the route, oversee independent drivers among other advantages.
As we sit here in Seattle fighting the snow and ice this week, I find myself looking at a lot of maps. Weather maps that show that the snow will, in fact continue to fall, neighborhood maps to see what others stuck at home are tweeting about, and even maps of warmer places because one can always dream.

Canada’s Yellow Pages Group (YPG) is launching a new developer ecosystem to support and stimulate startup innovation in the local search and location based services market, including a certified developer program and four ways to monetize applications. The new developer ecosystem comes partly from the group's work with hackfests. “We got tired of seeing all these great ideas die after the hack, we wanted to make sure these potential local search apps were brought to market," YPG's Bradley Wing said. YPG understands the YellowAPI is a natural extension of its existing business model, and extends the reach of its advertisers by feeding their listings through 3rd parties applications built on the platform.
