Posted on 16-Nov-2012 14:42. | Tags Filed under: News.



TomTom today launches its new Location Based Services (LBS) Platform and Developer Portal. TomTom LBS provides developers with the content and tools to rapidly create location-enabled applications for a variety of commercial and consumer markets. Example apps that can be created include fleet management, route planning, traffic management and geospatial analysis.

The cloud-based LBS Platform enables businesses to access TomTom's high quality location and navigation services including map display, routing, traffic and geocoding. In addition, the TomTom Developer Portal gives developers easy to use tools to build web and mobile apps using simple application programming interfaces (APIs) and Software Developer Kits (SDKs), with all supporting documentation.

"In response to the increasing demand for top quality data and services, TomTom is offering a comprehensive, easy to use solution for adding location intelligence to applications," said Dan Adams, vice president of Location and Live Services at TomTom. "The launch of the TomTom LBS Platform is an important evolution. Now we can provide application developers with web-based access to high-quality location content worldwide."

"NS, Netherlands Railways, and TomTom recently launched a webtool providing our combined customers with a world premiere: an objective comparison between real-time public transport and road traffic information. We are happy to see our passengers turn into better informed and more quality conscious customers", said Joost Ravoo, director Corporate Accounts NS.
