Just the other day we were wondering over the RSP Architects coffee machine about if GeoCommons would ever have an API. Rather than actually ask Sean if there was one in the works, it is of course easier to forget about the conversion and wait for Sean to blog about it himself. What I assume is one of the first GeoCommons API (this example is running on Amazon’s EC2) applications out there, Navigating Washington which allows real time poll mapping in your browser or even a Blackberry or iPhone (no Windows Mobile device because no one uses those anymore). I find the application very interesting and integration with mobile devices is a smart idea. I’m anxious to see what Sean has planned with the API and how we can use it.
What can’t maps do for you these days?
