Yahoo! Maps Web Service

Add geographically relevant content and easily embed rich and interactive maps into your web and desktop applications with Yahoo! Maps APIs.

Pick your platform: Flash, Ajax and Map Image APIs

Add your relevant content: Yahoo! Local listings, Traffic, Weather, Upcoming events, and even Flickr Photos.

Yahoo! Maps APIs support the GeoRSS standard as well so you can further extend the Maps API functionality to consume any other API.

Make your web site or application come alive with rich contextual maps, location-relevant content, and dynamic user interaction. Integrate a store locator with a few lines of code, view highway traffic patterns, or create custom routes – whatever you can imagine, Yahoo! Maps web services make it easy to build into your app. Yahoo! Maps’ built-in Geocoder lets you specify an address or latitude/longitude coordinates: no need to call an additional service or write special code.

Use DHTML and JavaScript to host your own maps. We provide the JavaScript functions to make map-making a breeze.

ActionScript 3 Flash APIs
