Specialty Websites Using Mashups

Is your travel company looking to do something fun or unique to create some buzz? There are lots of ways to make existing data more useful by leveraging dynamic technology to make your data more visual or interactive.

Mashups are web pages or applications that combine data, presentation or functionality from more than one external source to create a unique service or function. Using APIs and data sources to produce enriched results is a buzzworthy way of sharing information.
