Adding TomTom Maps to a Gatsby App
In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to integrate TomTom maps into a Gatsby site using modern React practices like refs. We also look at how to display data from an external source on the map and explore how to build routes to and from specific destinations that can be altered based on the type of goods being transported.
Using the Snap to Roads API with React
TomTom’s Snap to Roads API uses GPS data to reconstruct driver journeys. The API matches location data with road network information to determine the most probable route. In this article, we build a demo in which we’ll input two location coordinates, send this information to the Snap to Roads API, and draw the returned routes on our TomTom maps.
Using TomTom Maps with React Routing
This tutorial demonstrates how to use the TomTom Maps API, Maps SDK, and a React Router to dynamically update a map by connecting TomTom maps to React Routing.
From June 15-16, we participated in MOVE Europe in London. Product Marketing Manager Julija Babre spoke on a panel about how data-driven companies are providing new and innovative solutions for fleets. Learn more about the event here.
