Yahoo Maps Flash API

The Yahoo Maps Beta is being built on the Flash Platform, unlike Google Maps that uses DHTML and AJAX. While I’m convinced that the Flash experience will be way better, that’s not the most exciting news.

The cool part is that Yahoo has also introduced a Flash API for integrating the Yahoo Maps into your own Flash applications! The API comes in three flavors: ActionScript, Flash-JavaScript, and Flex. I’m hoping they come out with a Flex2/AS3 API too…that would really rock! Way to go Yahoo!
