The Temboo Android builds Android applications that connect to over 100 web-based resources and services (e.g. Facebook, Dropbox, US Census data) by standardizing how it interacts with APIs. The Android SDK allows developers to create applications that use Google's Geocoding API to retrieve the Latitude and Longitude for a specific address.
Last week at Where 2.0, Yahoo's Gary Gale discussed "geosetta", the concept of a geographic Rosetta Stone, which allows for a unified conversion of geographic namespaces based on different geographic reference identifiers (e.g., Yahoo's Where on Earth ID, or WOEID). The idea behind geosetta is that developers should be able to easily identify and cross reference a location among multiple service providers despite any disparities that may be inherent in the respective namespaces.
