Location is persistent and prevalent in our world. Whether it be over the Web or a wireless device, consumers expect location as a key ingredient in the way information is presented and business problems are solved. As the need to know “where” becomes increasingly more important, developers reach for the tools they need to create the richest, most-impactful web applications. MapQuest, a leader in location-based platform technologies, will discuss how their new API gives developers the resources to build compelling applications in a desktop-like environment. Learn about the latest additions to the MapQuest toolset and see how their tools can help location-enable rich internet applications.
