The Mapbox Navigation SDK for Android allows users to get from one location to another within your application with in-app turn-by-turn navigation. The Mapbox Navigation SDK for Android is built on top of the Mapbox Directions API and contains logic needed to get timed navigation instructions. It is a platform that enables users to explore the world's streets. The Mapbox Directions API is a intelligent turn-by-turn routing service that is based on crowdsourced real-time traffic. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers.
With respect to Web APIs, the industry has clearly and emphatically landed on REST as the standard way to implement these services. And for good reason... REST, which is generally implemented as a one-size-fits-all solution, is an excellent choice for a most companies who wish to expose their content to third parties, mobile app developers, partners, internal teams, etc. There are many tomes about what REST is and how best to implement it, so I won’t go into detail here. But if I were to sum up the value proposition to these companies of the traditional REST solution, I would describe it as:
If you've done much searching for locations using web tools--and who hasn't by now--you've likely discovered some errors along the way. Sometimes a map marker is down the street from the actual location. Geocoding, the process of converting an address to latitude/longitude coordinates, can be an inexact science. A new geocoding service from MapQuest (our MapQuest API profile) aims to help you improve where you place that marker with Address Point Data.
