Google Gives Me My Location Data

Google Latitude -- now with open data

I’ve been remiss to note that Google opened Latitude, their location-sharing site, to provide access to the data. Since I complained that was missing at launch, it’s only fair that I give credit when they make it right.

It is not your standard API, but does take a simple approach by using a feed. If you opt in, you can get your location in JSON, KML, or an HTML/JavaScript widget to add to your website. If you’re already set up with Latitude, find out how to get your data here.
