Verizon NavBuilder MapKit API

The MapKit framework allows a developer to embed a comprehensive set of location-based services that include maps, search, traffic and static directions in an application with minimum programming effort.

The kit is centered on a map object that provides a tile-based solution supporting multiple layers (road map/satellite/hybrid, traffic, routes) and provides built-in controls for standard map operations such as panning and zooming using the host device�s native gestures. The Map object includes programmable hooks that allow the host application to take full control of the map display.

The MapKit also provides a full set of search APIs that allow complex searches to be performed, providing the following types of results:

Address Search (Geocoding)
Reverse Geocoding
Local Search
Fuel Price Search
Movie Theaters
Movie Showtimes
Event Venues
Traffic Incidents
Static Directions
