Google Geo Developers Blog: Two new ways to add location intelligence to your apps

Google Geo Developers Blog: Two new ways to add location intelligence to your apps | Geospatial newsmese | Scoop.it

Map-based information is useful for any business that relies on a fleet of vehicles, employees who travel, or other mobile resources. To help organizations build their own location-enabled applications, we're launching two new APIs:
- Google Maps Tracks API allows an organization to build applications that can store, display and analyze GPS data on a map. The API is built on top of Google’s reliable cloud infrastructure and offers specialized features such as geo-fencing.

- Google Maps Geolocation API enables an application or device to determine its own location without the use of GPS by looking up the locations of nearby wifi access points and cell towers. By limiting GPS usage, a device can save battery life and work indoors or in remote areas.

This is an excellent example of using a map to create the illusion of a shrinking planet.  Everything on this map is shown approximately equal distance from the next city or hamlet.  In reality we are aware that these cities are not really that close to each other but this map makes them seem as if they are by creating spatial relationships that don’t really exist.
