DUBLIN, Ireland—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 1, 2008— Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the " The Potential of Mapping Mashups" report to their offering.

Mapping mashups are the most recognized mashup in the consumer world, and it is no surprise that they are starting to make an appearance in the enterprise domain as well.
