Foursquare location on Google map with Peek Maps widget

February 6th, 2010 by Derek Anderson Leave a reply »

Peek Maps is a location based mapping mashup that was originally created for use with the Peek mobile email device.

Foursquare “Check Ins” are now being mapped as well.

I admit it – I am a huge geolocation geek and I’m a big fan of the Peek.

So, when Peek and Xtify teamed up to provide a means to pull my own Peek’s location out of the ether, and to boot, they were hosting a programming competition, I knew I had to throw my hat into the ring. Thus, Peek Maps was born.

I really have enjoyed working on Peek Maps and the challenges it has brought. Many thanks to all at Peek, Xtify, and Foursquare for helping me in getting the project completed!
