Geographic Information System (GIS) data can come in a lot of forms, which can lead to confusion in how to represent data. One popular solution is GeoJSON, a data standard that was created by the Internet Engineering Task Force and defines a way to organize GIS data in the JSON format natively supported by the majority of web development languages, libraries, and frameworks. In this article we’ll look at the GeoJSON format, then use a GeoJSON data set to draw regional borders on a map with TomTom JavaScript Maps SDK for Web.

The TomTom Maps SDK for Web offers the easiest way to access the TomTom APIs for displaying maps along with other data sources. In this article, we'll build a map that displays the population density of the USA in the form of a heatmap. You'll see that it's remarkably easy to grab an external data source and use it to display custom layers on a map.

Government agencies and NGOs gather data about their communities that provides insights and information valuable for effective programs and planning. We’ll examine five innovative ways governments and agencies are collecting or using open data sources to improve civic life. For each of these five topics, we’ll look at the opportunities for developers to create applications and the TomTom APIs and SDKs they can use to power these applications.

Most mapping apps use default map styling. The Map Styler tool for the new TomTom JavaScript Maps SDK for Web makes it easy to create totally custom style templates that you can apply to your maps. What better way to demonstrate than to walk you through the process of creating a custom Halloween theme.

This Halloween, you can create an application that uses data, but doesn’t abuse it, and have fun experimenting with location-based code for a good cause. Let's explore the ethics and use case of using someone else’s location info, and how the Geofencing API can still offer engineers a way to create applications that protect the privacy of all parties.

Mapcodes are a free, open way to make every house or location on Earth addressable by a short code. With nothing else except your mapcode, a navigation system will bring someone to within meters of your front door. It’s easier to remember than coordinates, and in many cases more accurate than a street address. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Mapcode and demonstrate how the TomTom Search API provides direct support for finding locations with mapcodes.

Our location services and the Maps SDK for Web make it easy for programmers to create location-aware visualizations. In this tutorial we’ll walk through an application that uses a public data set of film locations in New York City to display these locations and information about them on a map. We'll also look at the techniques you can use to understand and convert other data sources to similar mapping displays, even if they don't include latitude and longitude coordinates.
