About Location APIs
Location APIs allow developers to build applications that rely on a user’s location to return relevant results. The popular application Foursquare is one such application that relies on a location API.
Other top applications, like DoorDash and other delivery services, use APIs to determine delivery areas and pickup and drop-off times to users when they place an order.
Of course, these types of APIs also provide users with the convenience of no longer relying on paper maps or atlases to navigate to their destinations.
What is a Location API?
Location APIs can be used to determine distances between users on an app, calculate distances between cities or zip codes, return physical addresses for IP addresses, and much more.
How do Location APIs work?
Location-based APIs utilize geolocation features on a device that work with cell phone towers and global positioning systems (GPS) to determine a radius of where the user is located. From there, the information is transmitted from the application being used to a company’s server to provide accurate results based on that location.
Who can benefit from a Location API?
People that need directions, are interested in finding friends nearby, or are looking for amenities like gas stations, restaurants, or places of interest when traveling are just some of those that can benefit from location-centric APIs and the applications that utilize them.
Why are Location APIs necessary?
In this ever-connected world, APIs that utilize location are an integral part of our everyday life. So whether you need directions to a new restaurant to meet work buddies for lunch or are wondering which of your friends are nearby, these APIs connect you with the world around you.
Businesses benefit primarily by being found by people who otherwise would never patronize them, simply because they didn’t know they existed! Likewise, websites like Yelp allow users to leave reviews on places they patronize in specific locations, which bring in even more customers.
What can you expect from a Location API?
Above all, location APIs should be accurate. Without accuracy, trips would be a nightmare, applications would not work correctly, and navigation would revert back to paper trails. Furthermore, applications that depend on location APIs should request the user’s permission to access their location data to protect privacy.
