Where 2.0 Links, Day 1

If I detect a trend it’s a good one: Google and Yahoo are both opening up access to their geodatabases. Dan Catt’s been explaining how you can now query Yahoo’s database for a landmark or location and get all manner of related geodata back. (James Fee likes it.) John Hanke’s announcement doesn’t sweat the details, but more news about Google’s GeoSearch API is apparently forthcoming soon.
