Yahoo! have released a new map application ( http://maps.yahoo.com/beta/ ) and a whole set of new APIs that I imagine would be of interest to people on this list:
Flash APIs for embedding Flash maps in your own pages (or Flash applications)
A REST Geocoding API for addresses in North America
A Map Image API for direct(ish) access to the underlying tile server
Disclaimer: I work for Yahoo!, but I’m not on the team that put this together.
- Yahoo! Maps Flash APIs
Embed maps in your web site or application using the free Macromedia Flash player for a rich user experience.
AS-Flash API - Create a Flash application that displays Yahoo! Maps using ActionScript®.
Flex™ API - Flexdevelopers can use the Flex API with Macromedia’s Presentation Server Technology to create powerful applications.
- Yahoo! Maps AJAX API
