MapQuest has launched another API on top of OpenStreetMap (OSM), the Wiki-like editable map of the world. The new search service provides geographic search results for any data added to OSM, such as streets or landmarks. Of note, the MapQuest API provides the service without any API Key requirements or rate limiting.
An email address can be the key to an online identity, and that's just what IDLight is using in its identity lookup API. By supplying either an email address or a URL to the IDLight API you could be turning the key to unlock a swath of identity information.
Created in 2006, Big Art Mob's original purpose was to accompany the Channel 4 show, 'Big Art Project'; the goal being to create the UK's first comprehensive map of street art. The site is now being re-launched along with iPhone and iPad applications, inviting users to upload and map public art anywhere in the world.
