LI 2006 First Thought

Today at LI we are hosting workshops by the big and no big players in LI/geospatial. The buzz seems to be about the upgrade of Google Maps API from version 1 to 2. Alongside that is a slight change in licensing titled “Friendlier Terms” by Brett Taylor in the Official Google Maps API blog. Google has “upped” the magic number of transactions beyond which one much “contact them” to 500,000 and promises to give 90 days notice before ads appear.

These are two issues which come up from time to time for developers, so it’ll be interesting to see if these changes appease them. If not, there are quite a few other players here who want to talk about terms of use and licensing.
