Some of the exciting new possibilities with our new map JS API comes from the fact that we now use high-performance WebGL rendering, giving us new features that were not present in the first version of our API. Here are some highlights:
We still support and develop our more light-weight JS API v1, which could be recommended in cases where you need to support old devices (non Web-GL devices). If you are unsure, contact us for guidance.
Find the documentation here.
Once maps are setup for a site/location, you can easily start developing a map experience using our JS API. It gives you an interactive map in no time at all, ready add your own events or layers on top of the map. It has built-in support for the standard wayfinding/routing service and the default MazeMap markers, with support for a wide range of colors and symbols. Because it is built with web technology, you can use the same codebase/implementation on both iOS and Android devices, leaving you with more time to focus on the application around the maps.
We believe our JS API is perfect for visualizing the location of indoors objects, such as inventory, machinery or even people. If you have the location coordinates of an item, you can place a map marker with a single line of code. From there, you can add interactivity and control the properties of the items, making the map a primary tool for management of spacial information.

For some use-cases, you want a simpler way to fetch the raw indoor map data. We have made available a Data API for developers/partners to use. The Data APIs are HTTP endpoints that return JSON objects for things like buildings, floors and POIs, making it possible to automate processes where you need up-to-date information from the MazeMap database.
These endpoints, along with examples of output and property specifications are documented in our repository over at GitHub.
Using URL parameters, you can launch the maps with a predefined view, initially marked Points of Interest, or even a pre-defined route. Our URL API is widely used when maps are integrated in automated systems, such as room booking, meeting invitations and SMS. The URL API is also the simplest way to embed a minimal map view of a particular point of interest, such as a building, faculty, reception desk or an office.
It is possible to use our maps within Google Maps, using the Google Maps APIs. There are multiple ways to do this, depending on your needs and your development resources. Feel free to contact us for advice on this kind of integration.
We would love to discuss and give advice on how you can provide value using our APIs. Don't hesitate to ask about our functionality or capabilities.Contact us
