MapData Services API - Comments

The Australian service provides mapping and location-aware information services for integration with other applications. Information available for a location includes property risks such as flood, fire, cyclone, earthquake and hailstorm along with more general social infrastructure such as roads, commercial activity, social service and government facilities, etc. Map rendering services help to generate images of terrain and conditions for a specified location, with road networks and route mapping between locations. API methods support submission of a location as address, latitude and longitude, or other location IDs along with information requested: risk factors, infrastructure, amenities, etc. Mapping methods allow designation of pin markers, area polygons, map boundaries and zoom levels, etc. Methods also support location-aware search for businesses and other features local to a specified place.
