Yahoo Moves to New Map Platform
Yahoo moved its maps to a new platform today, IDG News Service reports: “[W]ith the new platform, developed in-house, Yahoo Maps will perform better, offer more precise results and make backend upgrades easier to implement, Yahoo said. … The new platform will not disrupt the mapping service’s existing APIs (application programming interfaces) nor will third-party applications built using them require retooling, said Jeremy Kreitler, director of product management for Yahoo Maps.” The maps themselves, however, look quite different. Possibly better. Via All Points Blog.
