view story

http://techcrunch.com – Google today launched two new APIs for Google Maps that are specifically geared toward tracking the location of vehicles, mobile resources and employees. By announcing these new APIs on its enterprise blog and by asking developers to go through its sales team to purchase access, the company is clearly signaling that these features aren’t so much meant for casual apps, though it’s easy to see how many location-aware apps could profit from using these tools. The new Google Maps Tracks API will allow developers to build apps that can store, display and analyze GPS data on a map. This (IT news)
