TomTom Launches SDK for LBS Apps - What software developers get if they sign up

Today, TomTom announced a new Map Toolkit API. Here's a list of what TomTom is offering to app developers (source: TomTom):

  • Map display web service, which delivers WMS-style raster maps based on TomTom’s flagship MultiNet map database. Tiles are pre-rendered at 18 zoom levels, ranging from a single global tile to 305x305 meter detailed map images.
  • Geocoding web service, enabling both free text forward geocoding (find a location by entering an unstructured address, place or POI) and reverse geocoding (identify a location from a pair of latitude and longitude coordinates).
  • Routing web service, which provides highly accurate point to point routing and route re-calculation using TomTom’s best-in-class algorithms.
  • Traffic web service, using TomTom’s HD Traffic to deliver real-time traffic incident and delay information.

TomTom is making downloadable iOS (v 5.0), Android (API Level 8 [V2.2x] and higher), and JavaScript software development kits (SDKs) from their developer portal. Here's what's included:

  • Reception of an API key for evaluation (upon registration)
  • Documentation available to download
  • Code snippets and SDKs
  • Reporting and analytics to test and manage apps
  • Transaction based pricing
  • Support and forum
