I am not that familiar with the Drupal API [1], but my guess is that it should 
be possible to write a drupal module that provides an interface to the 
profile data (e.g. by outputting xml data instead of a page). This would be 
similar to the way the rss module of drupal provides an RSS interface to the 

Another solution would be to access the drupal database directly and provide a 
CI model that uses the drupal database... I also think it is rather 
straightforward to reimplement the views of the map application as drupal 
modules, but this limits the reusability, off course.
