Do you know anyone with a car glovebox full of inked-up road maps? What a waste of paper (and ink!). Using Google Maps is, of course, the preferred method to mark up maps. One tool that makes it especially easy is Scribble Maps. And now it’s testing “pro” features, a fee-based service with even more features.
This week we had 7 new APIs added to our API directory ranging from an API for managing email marketing campaigns, an API for searching for available domain names, an API for finding facvicons, an API for Google Sites, a ringtone search API, a social recruiting platform API, and an API for creating embeddable maps (which we covered in Map Any Image With New UMapper Release).

If you enjoy creating fun, interactive maps, you’ll get lost in the latest functionality from UMapper (our UMapper mashup profile). With it, you can include any image–even one that isn’t a map–in its Flash viewer.
UMap, provided by AFComponents, is a Flash ActionScript mapping API that allows developers to create custom map mashups with interactive data layers. Umap includes a variety of features including support for Flash/Flex versions, custom map tiles integration, KML support, and other capabilities (see our UMap API Profile for more).
