Cape Town – Google launched two new APIs for Google Maps that are specifically geared toward tracking the location of vehicles, mobile resources and employees.

The new Google Maps Tracks API will allow developers to build apps that can store, display and analyse GPS data on a map.

The Google Maps Geolocation API allows developers to get more accurate location data without the need to use a GPS. Instead, the service tries to triangulate your location by looking at the cell towers and Wi-Fi access points around you.
