Web Mashup Applications

A Mashup is a web application created using the public interface or API of two or more third party applications.

A cool web services tool is using the GoogleMAP API to link underlying mapdata with geographically linked data. It is a great example of the power ofweb services ( and workflow). It is ideal for any application that wants tomap data to geographical positions e.g network maps, Quilt and GLIF maps,customer data etc, etc.

There are concerns about Mashing, because it indicates the non-negotiated use of two or more data sites to create your content. And there is absolutely no guarantee that they will either continue to provide a data stream you can use, or that they won't modify the stream, and break a lot of your application

However,some of the best mash up websites are listed in BusinessWeek, "Sampling the Web's Best Mash-Ups".
