Announcing Licensed Maps, Geocoding, and Routing Plugins for Leaflet (Beta)
MapQuest is excited to offer three of our most popular core services -- maps, geocoding, and routing -- as (beta) Leaflet plugins so that developers can easily integrate MapQuest services into Leaflet-based applications. Yes, we said easily.
You don't have to take our word for it; find out for yourself and get started today!
Introducing the Data Manager API
Did you know that you can store your geographic data with MapQuest and perform spatial searches on that data using the Search API Web Service? The latest version of Data Manager -- Data Manager v2 -- has been completely re-engineered to support not only point data, but lines and polygons as well. We like to think of Data Manager as being spatially-aware.
Support for the geography data type isn't the only new feature included with Data Manager v2. Data Manager functionality is now exposed through a Web Service. No longer do you need to visit the Developer Network to upload data; you can create tables, upload data, edit data, and perform other Data Manager functions via API calls, which can be easily integrated into custom applications!
Flash Maps API 7.1.2 Released
(Licensed & Open)
We've recently updated our popular Flash Maps API suite, which is now at version 7.1.2. Not only did the core Flash Maps API receive an update; the Mobile Flash Maps API, Open Flash Maps API, and Open Mobile Flash Maps API also received updates.
The Flash Maps API and Mobile Flash Maps API were updated to include support for the latest version of the Search API Web Service; you can now easily search your point, line, or polygon data stored in the latest version of Data Manager.
Take a look at the Flash Maps API Samples Explorer to see this functionality in action!
