Map Input Tracker
What is the Map Input Tracker?
Map Input Tracker is a RESTful API designed for TomTom end-users and business customers to submit map feedback on a wide range of features. TomTom business customers can easily integrate the API into their existing products and services, enabling them to provide a feedback tool to their end-users.
Map reports can be submitted via both TomTom as well customer branded online, mobile/tablet, or in-dash platforms. The Map Input Tracker API enables TomTom to shorten the time between detecting changes in the real-world and updating the map on an end-user's device. By leveraging community members in this way, TomTom can now deliver high quality, real-time map updates to customers faster then any other mapmaker on the market.
The API is fully integrated with the TomTom Connected Navigation Application covering the use case that allows users to send map reports over the air. For more details see the Automative pages.
