In preparation for my upcoming tech talk about Yahoo Placemaker I thought I have a bit more fun playing with the API. The main thing I wanted to create is a tool that makes it easy to either get geo content from some text as microformats or as a map to copy and paste without having to read lots of documentation.
Enter GeoMaker. In just three steps you can either get from URL to map or from text to map. If you add the site address to analyze as a URL parameter it even goes down to two steps :)
I’d love to get feedback and see how we can improve this. I’ll release the code on GitHub in case you want to host this yourself once I got some more iterations done on it.
