I designed MapPOD as a mobile-first application (before such a thing existed), the purpose of this application was to create an easy-to-use display and purchase mechanism for Space Imaging/GeoEye. Initially, the Flash based RIA used a REST call from ESRI to display the map information at a pre-determined resolution. Because of YahooMap’s Flash API, maps could also be drawn from that source. Area of interest could come from a simple latitude/longitude input or placename data could be populated into dropdown selections from a PHP/MySQL call or an XML file. It is no longer available online.
