TomTom, location and navigation products provider, recently enhanced its API offering with a new Location Based Services (LBS) platform and developer portal. The developer portal includes a series of APIs aimed at facilitating new applications that require rich geolocation data.
Navionics announced a new web mapping API in Java to bring its navigation charts and other content to developers. The Navionics API is free, and is not to be incorporated in a fee-based website at this point. Of the three tiers for pricing, silver, gold and platinum, the API does not access the top of the line product. Languages supported are English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. A sign up is required to access the API's technical information.
