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.

How do you take a round object and display it accurately on a flat surface? TomTom's location services employ a Spherical Mercator projection of the earth's surface to create the underlying map representation used by the services. The map data is further delineated by zoom levels and tile grids that provide the exact visual representation you need to display a map.

With location services you can retrieve your current location, the location of a place you are trying to find and the turn-by-turn directions to get there. Providing directions between two or more locations is routing. We’ll show you how that works with TomTom’s Routing API.

We conclude our series of articles on creating a WordPress Plugin that use the TomTom Maps and Search APIs, adding the final touch to our plugin: intelligent routing that helps a site user generate driving directions to guide them from their present location to their chosen store location. Moreover, they'll be smart directions based on current traffic conditions.
