The service provides map images for global locations to be transferred electronically as "tiles" that join together in a grid to display the complete map. Applications can submit location parameters identifying the area to be mapped, and the service breaks down image data for delivery to a single recipient or multiple recipients as a set of pre-rendered tiles allowing 18 zoom levels.
API methods support mapping requests specifying the boundaries of the tile locations to be mapped and the zoom level. Returned data provide pre-rendered tile images. Optional methods can also return travel routes and real-time traffic data as additional layers overlaying the map image.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
