Map Tiles for interactive online maps based on data by OpenStreetMap contributors with labels in English, French or Spanish.
Find nearest or largest city information or timezone for any given point location (latitude/longitude). The reverse geocode API back "reverse" codes any GPS location point into nearest or largest readable places with county, city, distance and population.
US Zipcode, County, City, and State Boundaries API: A simple & very fast API that will allow you to integrate multiple GeoJson US boundaries results into your apps and systems. This API is designed to be used programatically for optimal performance. When using the MashApe UI for queries expect significant latency issues on large result sets!
Search for places. Provides detailed information for over 100 million places and points of interest.
Forward & Reverse Geocoding based on OpenStreetMap data. Find geocoordinates (latitude and longitude) for an address or use reverse geocoding to define positions for asset tracking and more.
Calculate distances and travel time between cities, addresses, postcodes or airports. Geocoding, car or foot directions, airline and many more data included.
Calculate a route with turn-by-turn navigation instructions between a pair or more waypoints.
Free API to convert coordinates (latitude, longitude) to and from address An Easy, Open, Worldwide, Free Geocoding API
Mapilion provides you with vector and raster map tiles at scale. Based on OpenStreetMap and OpenMapTiles.
CA Postal Code(ex. T6H, or A0A0A1 ), FSA and LDU, Boundaries API: A simple & very fast API that will allow you to integrate multiple GeoJson CA FSA and LDU level boundaries result into your apps and systems. This API is designed to be used programatically for optimal performance. When using the MashApe UI for queries expect significant latency issues on large result sets!
UK Postal Code(ex. ZE1 0AE), Sector, District, Boundaries API: A simple & very fast API that will allow you to integrate multiple GeoJson UK Unit and sector level boundaries result into your apps and systems. This API is designed to be used programatically for optimal performance. When using the MashApe UI for queries expect significant latency issues on large result sets!
Normalize a free-form address (validation, auto correction, translation and geocoding). Normalized address includes formatted address and address components (country, city, zipcode, etc) , latitude, longitude, timezone and global/compound plus codes.
Fast Routing API including turn-by-turn directions with worldwide coverage and high availability.
A very simple API that accepts a US ZIP code as an input, and returns the state that it is in.
Calculates the coefficient of how similar are 2 strings containing the name (and type) of the route. With a value of 0.9 and higher, it is possible to do auto-matching, at 0.2-0.9 - visual matching.
Mapping APIs offer location services and intelligence to developers that provide services or products relative to a place. Whether mapping out the best route to take to an upcoming event, planning shipping routes, or offering location-based recommendations, a mapping API can help accomplish this and much more.
A mapping API is the primary building block in any location-based application. Mapping APIs may include directions, geocoding, geolocations, navigation, and reverse geocoding features. In addition, the maps included may be turn-by-turn, satellite, terrain, or a mix of all three.
Map APIs may also include functionality for customizable control objects. Developers can build in images and graphics, markers, widgets, and popups depending on their needs.
Mapping APIs use code to tap into massive geolocation databases to return informational and directional functionality into third-party applications and websites. The leading map database providers, like Google, will provide complete software development kits (SDKs) to help developers implement the APIs into their creations.
There are thousands of use cases for mappings APIs that can benefit developers, web admins, companies, and end-users. Besides typical travel directions, some examples are:
While they can still be found in local gas stations and bookstores, paper maps and atlases are rarely used these days. Even people who are into boondocking and offroading often have favorite applications they turn to for satellite terrain images and location features. The ability to have a device in one’s hand to ensure never getting lost is priceless, and this capability is powered by a mapping API.
First and foremost, a developer should ensure the data they are accessing is the most up-to-date available for functionality and user experience. Since a user’s location needs to be turned on for many features to work optimally, encryption standards must be high. As roads and travel conditions change regularly, the API and database it connects to should both remain current.
All Mapping APIs are supported and made available in multiple developer programming languages and SDKs including:
