MapmyIndia has launched its Map API platform for software developers and enterprises. MapmyIndia’s API (Application Programming Interface) platform consists of individual APIs for interactive mapping and visualization of location-based data, geocoding (location search), reverse geocoding (address look-up), routing (driving directions), and other location-based analytics such as distance matrix (distance from multiple locations).
By using MapmyIndia’s Map APIs, software developers and enterprises can integrate MapmyIndia’s map data into their location-based applications. MapmyIndia’s map database currently includes street-level data for 8000+ towns, house-level data for 93 cities, 10.8 million points of interest, and pan India data for 645,000 villages, 22,000 pin codes, and 2.2 million kilometres of road network with navigation attributes.
MapmyIndia APIs are available free, forever, to developers to build and test an unlimited number of applications. Users that deploy commercial applications, and want higher levels of API transactions and customer support, can choose from one of the available paid plans. The process of building an app powered by MapmyIndia’s APIs is quite simple. A developer visits the API website, signs up with his/her details, gets a license key instantly, and can start developing and deploying an app immediately.
Complete documentation explaining each API, including live demos and downloadable source code of examples, is also available. Enterprises that need quick and hassle-free solutions to their specific location needs can leverage MapmyIndia’s additional services to develop custom APIs and complete applications, and additional data licensing solutions for the underlying vector map and location database of points of interest, house addresses, pin codes, localities, roads, cities, towns, villages, districts and states across India, as well as pan-India census geo-demographics and locality-wise population and income estimates across major cities.
