Trabajando con el API de Google Maps

Mediante el API que nos ofrecen Google Maps los desarrolladores del servicio podremos hacer uso de sus bondades. En este artículo pretendemos explicar los aspectos más relevantes de este API.

Google Maps es un servicio gratuito que nos ofrece Google con mapas desplazables del mundo entero, fotos satelitales, la ruta más corta entre diferentes ubicaciones y muchas características interesantes. Es semejante a Google Earth; una aplicación para Windows, Mac y Linux; pero con la diferencia que Google Maps es fácilmente integrable a cualquier sitio web.

Accessing The Cloud From Cocoa Touch

Everything is moving toward the cloud and unless you’re building calculators, unit converters, or miniature golf score keepers your iPhone app needs to know how to get data from it. In this blog post I intend to demonstrate how to set up a simple server application and how to retrieve data from it and post data to it using Cocoa Touch. I have chosen to use PHP on the server side because of it’s simplicity and ubiquity, and because I’ve know it, somewhat. You should, however, be able to implement something similar using your server side language of choice.

In many cases when you go to access remote data, you do so through a web service API. While services based on such technologies as SOAP or XML-RPC are standards that provide reasonable methods for retrieving and updating data, REST seems to be the methodology gaining the most ground lately. For our purpose in this post I won’t get into great detail of how to implement a REST base web service as, again, REST is not a specific implementation but rather a methodology. (Read up on it elsewhere if you don’t understand what this means). However, I will talk about it briefly so that you can get on the right path for doing your own REST implementation.
