A mashup is a web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated application or tool. This example will use cartographic data from Google Maps and Google Earth to add location information to photographs taken in New Orleans, LA, creating new and distinct web services not originally enabled by either source.

The term “mashup” originally referred to the practice in popular music of DJs producing a new song by mixing two or more existing pieces.
