Mashups are hybrid applications that combine two applications that otherwise would stand separately, such as a database and a map. Here are a couple of examples:

  • Frappr is a very popular social mapping application
  • SiteMeter autocreates a map of locations visiting a web page - such as this one of visitors in the past day to the Online Learning Update blog.

There are many ways that we might use these in classes or to make meaning out of multiple sets of data.

To combine a couple of Web 2.0 applications - check out this Flickr of Images tagged as Mashups !
