Google Publishes Open Source API – Example

Housing – Chicago

Integrating google tools into web applications via open source API.

The developer, Paul Rademacher, has integrated google’s map search functionality with the home / apartment rental and for sale listings in http://craigslist.org. In one frame you see the push-pin google map with the locations, and on the other the names of the properties for rent or for sale.

For those unfamiliar with Craig’s List, despite the odd name, it’s very active and effective “community based” on-line classified advertising website.
