Yahoo Placefinder – and an explorer interface for it

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Yesterday Yahoo released another geo API - Yahoo Placefinder which is gives you street level information about the world.

The API is pretty straight forward and has some cool features like street crossing information and nearest airport features. To give you an idea of what the API returns, I created a small explorer hack:

Placefinder Explorer

You can download the explorer on GitHub in case you want to play with it yourself.
