Worldwide Taxi Calculators
One very popular use of the Google Maps API over the years has been for creating taxi fare calculators. There are fare calculators built on Google Maps in South America, India and Greece. Now the UK has its own taxi fare calculator in YourTaxiMeter.
In the UK taxi fare tariffs are determined by local government. This enables YourTaxiMeter to provide very accurate predictions of the fare for any journey. Using the YourTaxiMeter Google Map you just need to enter your starting point and destination and an estimated fare will be calculated.
YourTaxiMeter also includes a license plate look-up service which allows you to enter the licence plate of a taxi to determine whether it is a real licensed cab or not.
