If you are getting started with ithe iOS Map Kit and are looking for a good example that illustrates how to perform common Map related tasks I’ve found a great example that uses several open source libraries which I have previously mentioned on this site.

The example is from Hunter Hillegass and demonstrates Json file downloading using ASIHttpRequest, JSON file parsing with JSONKit, storing the downloaded data within a Core Data database, noting the locations with Map Kit, and keeping the user updated with MBProgressHUD progress indicators.

You can find the project here:
https://github.com/HunterHillegas/HelloMapKitWorld

The necessary libraries are included witihin the Github, but if you are looking for them individually then –

ASIHttpRequest can be found here:
https://github.com/pokeb/asi-http-request

JSONKit can be found here:
https://github.com/johnezang/JSONKit

MBProgressHUD can be found here:
https://github.com/jdg/MBProgressHUD

It makes for a good beginners example of how to use map kit, and those open source libraries.
