MapMyIndia introduces Maps API

MapmyIndia has announced the public launch of its Map API platform for software developers and enterprises. The APIs are using REST (HTTP/JSON) and JavaScript technologies, thereby supporting apps built for various web, mobile and cloud platforms.


API platform consists of individual APIs for interactive mapping and visualization of location-based data, geocoding (location search), reverse geocoding (address look-up), routing (driving directions), and other location-based analytics such as distance matrix (distance from multiple locations). With these APIs, users can now easily add valuable location intelligence capabilities and MapmyIndia map data to their consumer (B2C) apps, business (B2B) apps and enterprise IT systems. The APIs are REST (HTTP/JSON) and JavaScript based, thus supporting apps built for various web, mobile and cloud platforms and can be accessed at

“We are excited to help software developers and enterprises increase the value of their apps and IT systems by integrating location intelligence capabilities. MapmyIndia is more attractive than other map platforms as it offers best-in-class map data, a price point that starts at free and affordably scales up based on usage, and additional services including custom API and app development as well as base map data licensing options. MapmyIndia APIs help developers build location-based apps very easily and quickly. We are extremely happy that 200 developers have already signed up since we privately released the APIs last month, and welcome all developers and enterprises to try MapmyIndia APIs”.

said Rakesh Verma, Managing Director of MapmyIndia, in a press release.

By using MapmyIndia’s Map APIs, software developers and enterprises can integrate MapmyIndia’s map data into their location-based applications. MapmyIndia APIs are available free, forever, to developers to build and test an unlimited number of applications. Users that deploy commercial applications, and want higher levels of API transactions and customer support, can choose from one of the available paid plans. A developer will need to visits the API website, signs up with his details, gets a license key instantly, and can start developing and deploying an app immediately.

MapmyIndia’s map database currently includes street-level data for 8000+ towns, house-level data for 93 cities, 10.8 million points of interest, and pan India data for 645,000 villages, 22,000 pin codes, and 2.2 million kilometres of road network with navigation attributes.
