Nokia Maps API

What Is the Maps API?

The Nokia Maps API for JavaScript (the Maps API) is a set of programming interfaces that enable developers to build Web applications with feature rich, interactive Nokia Maps at their center. The API consists of libraries of classes and methods with which to implement the functionality of an interactive application.

The associated API Playground offers ready-made working examples, whose code the developer can modify and view the effect immediately.

Feature List

The main features offered by the Maps API are summarized in the table below:

The API provides full access to world-leading map data in three different modes: satellite, terrain and hybrid.

The map data to which the API offers access, include millions of different places, landmarks, places and addresses located on maps. Their visibility on the map can be controlled via the API.

The API allows you to build search functionality into you application. Users can searches for places, using keywords, addresses, or geographic coordinates.

The API provides full access to geocoding and reverse geocoding services.

The API allows you to define and render routes between a start and a destination point. It supports many navigation options such as toll road
preference and transport type.

The API includes built-in functionality that takes advantage of the W3C Geolocation API supported by many browsers.

The API allows you to modify existing markers or create custom ones, using SVG or bitmap images. You can also add geo shapes based on coordinates to the map: polygons, polylines, circles or rectangles, and make these custom map object interactive by assigning UI events to them.
