This SDK is a directions plugin for mapbox-gl-js using the Mapbox Directions API. It provides a way to quickly add UI to display driving, cycling, or walking directions on the map. The Mapbox Directions API is powered by the OSRM routing engine and open data from the OpenStreetMap project. Some features include; calculate optimal driving, walking, and cycling routes, produce turn-by-turn instructions and produce routes with up to 25 coordinates anywhere on earth. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers.
On October 18, ProgrammableWeb will host a webinar discussing the critical importance of GeoEnrichment and data quality. You’ll learn what to look for in quality APIs, and see new APIs from Pitney Bowes in action. Pitney Bowes offers more than 4,500 global datasets.
This article is part of a 10-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2016. Mapping and Location APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
