eeGeo 3D Maps JavaScript API is Now in Beta

eeGeo has announced the beta release of the eeGeo 3D Maps JavaScript API, an API that developers can use to quickly add eeGeo 3D maps to browser-based applications. The eeGeo 3D Maps JavaScript API is available via the eeGeo SDK and implemented using eegeo.js, a JavaScript library built on WebGL and Leaflet.js. This is the latest API released by eeGeo, the company released the eeGeo Points of Interest API earlier this year.

The eeGeo 3D Maps JavaScript API is implemented in a similar way to other JavaScript maps APIs such as Google Maps, Mapbox, and CartoDB. Adding an eeGeo 3D map using the JavaScript API involves adding the external JavaScript file eegeo.js and a few lines of HTML code. The eeGeo JavaScript API differs from many of the other JavaScript maps APIs however in that it’s built on WebGL and Leaflet.js.

According to the eeGeo announcement blog post "eeGeo map objects are a direct extension of Leaflet.js map objects — just add eegeo.js to your scripts and replace L.map with L.eegeo.map. You can complement our maps with Leaflet’s CSS-customizable markers, popups, and more." There are also specialized Leaflet API wrappers available for eeGeo features such as themes and indoor maps.

There are over a dozen live examples that developers can use to experiment with the different features of the eeGeo 3D Maps JavaScript API. The eeGeo 3D Maps JavaScript API is free to use during the beta period and the company encourages developers to provide feedback about the API.
