Interesting Things

  • Yahoo’s Geolocation service is broken after they released a new version if their code. Zip code searching in particular significantly broken — discussion thread here: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/yws-maps/message/5468 — here is an example:
    • Search for a zip code using the following URL: http://local.yahooapis.com/MapsService/V1/geocode?appid=YahooDemo&location=94102
    • Result (notice the bad State and Zip tags):
<code>
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <ResultSet xmlns:xsi=" http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="urn:yahoo:maps"
               xsi:schemaLocation="urn:yahoo:maps http://api.local.yahoo.com/MapsService/V1/GeocodeResponse.xsd">
      <Result precision="zip">
        <Latitude>37.779411
        <Longitude>-122.417740
        <Address>
        <City>San Francisco, CA 94102
        <State>United States
        <Zip>
        <Country>US
      </Result>
    </ResultSet>

UPDATE
This is fixed! Thanks, Yahoo!
