Techopedia Explains Geospatial Mashups

Geospatial mashups can be constructed in many ways. For example, a visual map might take data from different parts of a business architecture and display all of them with color-coded mapping. A geospatial mashup can also be much more technically and analytically oriented. What these have in common is that they take the aggregated data and display them visually for decision makers. Some businesses seem to be adopting geospatial mashups as an effective way to deliver more information to end users.
