Google Tech Talks July 24, 2008 ABSTRACT Faculty Summit 2008 - Day 1 Geo API - Keith Golden One of the keys to the success of Google Maps is a rich API that can be used by outside developers and researchers to create interactive applications and mashups. There are over 150,000 active Maps API websites representing a broad range of applications from Earth science to social networking. The Maps API continues to grow as new features are added to Maps; recent additions to the API include support for Street View panoramas, rendering 3D models through the Earth plugin, My Maps editing, geocoding, local search, driving directions and traffic. This interactive session will discuss Google Maps as a development platform and show how powerful web applications or research prototypes can easily be built on top of Maps. Audience participation is highly encouraged. Speaker: Keith Golden

Google Tech Talks July 24, 2008 ABSTRACT Faculty Summit 2008 - Day 1 Google Data - Mark Stahl & Jeff Fisher This presentation will give an overview of the Atom Publishing Protocol, a simple but powerful way of publishing and interacting with data stored on the web. The Atom Publishing Protocol is used as the basis of the Google Data APIs, which provide programmatic access to several Google applications. We will demonstrate a simple example that uses a web application to crowdsource the semantic labeling of image content. Data is both retrieved and published via Data APIs. We will also show how to publish the results of this example as an AtomPub API, and discuss ways you can use AtomPub as the mechanism for sharing your own data.
