Let’s go for a drive
A bit of fun really, but this 2D Driving Simulator shows interesting use of the Google Maps API. Of course, it would be nice if the car wasn’t able to drive through buildings but you get the idea. In fact, the concept works better with an aeroplane.
Mapping still seems to be the most popular category for mashups, judging by ProgrammableWeb’s Mashup Dashboard (click ‘All’ rather than ‘Last 14 days’). Interestingly, ‘social’ has been as popular a new mashup in the last two weeks, although only four per cent overall compared to thirty-nine for mapping. With increasing numbers of mashups for sites such as Delicious, Facebook and LinkedIn, does this suggest a new focus for mashing?
