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 deviceï¿½s 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)
Fuel Price Search
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
