Maps APIs

Both Google and Yahoo have announced their Maps API.

"The Google Maps API lets web developers put Google Maps on their own sites."

The Google Maps API lets developers embed Google Maps in their own web pages with JavaScript. You can add overlays to the map (including markers and polylines) and display shadowed "info windows" just like Google Maps. Google retains the right to put advertising on the map in the future.

"Yahoo! now offers an open XML API. It's free, stable, and backward compatible."

The Yahoo API accepts street addresses in addition to lat/long inputs. They also provide space on the page for developer attribution, and links to go back to the referral page.
