What are mashups?
A mashup combines data from more than one source into a single tool. Data sources often include maps (such as Google Maps and databases (such as a spreadsheet of clinic locations).
Mashups allow you to search for and locate information and services. They also can help you track information such as disease outbreaks.
Creating your own mashup requires a certain level of comfort with software technology, but there are several online tools that do not require technical expertise. You can customize many ready-made mashups by using your own data. If you are interested in creating your own mashups, tools such as ZeeMaps and Dapper can help you get started.
