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.

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.

TomTom JavaScript Maps SDK for Web 5.0 includes support for new mapping capabilities including the ability to rotate the map and the ability to change the map’s tilt programmatically. There’s even a new flyTo mode that animates the transition between views. In this article, we’ll build an application using the TomTom JavaScript Maps SDK for Web and write code to demonstrate how to set the map location, orientation, and perspective.

TomTom maps return useful results even if you misspell a search term or provide incomplete address information. In this article we'll explain how the TomTom Search API provides "fuzzy search" results for points of interest through spell-checking, nearby search options, geometric boundary searches, route searches and more.

The number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) on the road is increasing every year. There are an estimated 5.12 million EVs on the road today, and sales of EVs increased by 64% just from 2017 to 2018. Now that drivers are considering the switch to EVs, some common questions arise, and EV-aware apps are a big opportunity for developers, such as routing services optimized for EV drivers and the ability to provide up-to-date information about the location and availability of charging stations. We'll take a look at those concerns and show you how TomTom Developer Toolkit for Electric Mobility provides new features that simplify building location-based apps for EV drivers.

Routing is the simple task of finding a path from one point to another. TomTom's Routing API also provides batch and matrix routing tools that enable more complex scenarios such as generation large batches of routes at one time or evaluation complex matrices of possible origins and destinations. We'll explain how these options work.
