Hi Nitin,

Issuemap is open source: https://github.com/fortiusone/issuemap
The stylesheet we use is also open source: https://github.com/fortiusone/acetate

The GeoCommons API is free to use and built on, some of the glue
sticking everything together is not open source.

There is a developers group here for discussing our APIs if you are
interested: http://groups.google.com/group/geoiq-developer
