Oodle Does Mashups
The classifieds aggregator Oodle announced the integration of Google Maps into its housing category listings. Here are two bedroom Santa Cruz, CA vacation rentals, for example.
One of the nice things you can do is drag the map and see the available listings in an adjacent geographic area. So you could literally follow the coast north or south to find additional rentals.
Had a good chat with Oodle CEO Craig Donato late today about a range of subjects. He believes maps are central to all things local and said Oodle's integration of Google maps is still being tweaked, and that bugs will be worked out in the coming weeks. He also said that maps will be added in other sections across the site.
