What Is the Maps API?
The associated API Playground offers ready-made working examples, whose code the developer can modify and view the effect immediately.
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.
The following is a list of SDKs from our SDK directory that matched your search term. Though your definition of an SDK may differ, in our world, we define SDKs as platform- specific tools for consuming existing APIs of the sort we list in our API directory. For example, the Ruby SDK for consuming the Twitter Ads API. If you think an SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
With the Here iOS SDK by Nokia, developers can build geo-applications. Features include Here maps data, embeddable maps, gestures, objects, routing, places, and search. Here aims to immerse users with their location services, providing accurate maps in a global database.
The Here Android SDK by Nokia allows developers to build geo-applications. Users can benefit from routing, interactive maps, and global place search features that Here offers. Characteristics of the service for implementation include map styles, touch gestures, point of interest, geocoding, specific & alternate routes. Available content of 25 million streets, 200 million address points, and 60 million categorized places around the world.
