Announcing MazeMap JS API — a framework that really opens up huge possibilities for existing MazeMap customers, new developers, app makers and software businesses.
Getting more value from MazeMap indoor maps
It is now possible to easily add custom elements on top of the maps, create custom events and react to user interactions.
Create customer-specific applications
A lot of businesses and customers that have app developers, wonder how they can integrate the MazeMap indoor maps into the custom applications and web services they are making.
Now, it is just a few lines of code, and they can have a working, interactive indoor map within their own application.

Example use cases
Along with feedback we have gotten from app developers and customers, we envision a lot of various use cases. Finally, it is possible to add the indoor dimension to existing applications.
- Room booking/reservation systems
- Time schedule applications
- Room inventory information systems
- Indoor analytics visualizations
- Information kiosk stations
- Facility Management systems
- Hospital/University branded mobile applications

Built upon Leaflet
For developers who already know and love this easy mapping library, you will have no problems using the extended indoor variant, which is the MazeMap JS API.
Because of the underlying Leaflet integration, we support using many of the very same map plugins that exists for standard Leaflet maps. Examples of using such plugins with the MazeMap JS API is documented on the plugin examples page.

We also have the documentation and examples for developers.
