CloudMade Updates Offerings for the Next Four Years

In a detailed blog post at CloudMade lays out keys milestones frome the past four years and introduces three new mapping platform offerings. The last news I reported from Cloudmade was about its in-game sponsoring platform, Zigi in Oct 2012. That was, from what I understood, the plan for a pivot away from mapping. Either I misunderstood the plan or the plan changed. It sure sounds like CloudMade is back in mapping for the longer haul.

The new products include:

Mapsafe” family

CloudMade Mapsafe is a technology stack that manages personal geo data tied, and authenticated, to the individual user.

Hybrid” family 

CloudMade Hybrid enables geo data from different providers to be managed in the cloud and distributed to devices and applications on an as-needed basis.

Magellan uses the Hybrid tools for its SmartGPS, which will be demoed at Mobile World Congress this week, per GPS Biz News.

new range of CloudMade SDKs, starting with Android

CloudMade's NavSDK comes with all the features you need to implement your own navigation solution in a smartphone or dedicated device application.
