The Mapbox Unity Maps C# SDK is a wrapper for Mapbox location APIs. It allows Unity developers a way to to integrate location into any mobile or online application. The SDK allows you to access and interact with Mapbox from within the Unity 3D platform for Maps, Geocoding, and Directions services. It unlocks global data to generate custom 3D worlds, power location lookup, and incorporates traffic-based directions in your next Unity project. This includes; Mapbox Streets, Satellite imagery, Custom data and more. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers that provides tools for Maps and location data, Location based games, VR and AR applications and more.
There is a new wave of mapping APIs that are helping developers provide better location feedback to users. These "reverse geocoders" do more than just return an address. Instead, they provide meaningful names associated with the place, such as a business. In some cases, it gets even more specific.
We've previously covered 3 free to geolocate any user. Today there's another option, with Quova offering its service for free for the first time. The simple API provides extensive geographic information with only a user's IP address (like 184.108.40.206) as input. The service was announced, along with a developer portal, at the Business of APIs conference in San Francisco.
