I was interested in writing an application that maps addresses by
region. For example in California you might have Northern California,
SF Bay Area, Southern California etc..
Does the yahoo maps API support categorization by region? Is there an
official place where regions are defined rather than haphazardly
defining my own, yahoo or otherwise?
The idea is that when an address is saved into our contacts database I
can make an API call to get the region from the address. Then people
can see specific people mapped onto a region of a state. If this is
hopeless then I will just turn to mapping entire states and leave it
Any advice is appreciated.
