This API provides several Location Services on your mobile applications by interacting with the GPS on the devices where the apps are running. Some of its methods are available for Web environments as well.
To use this API, methods (such as CalculateDirections method), Properties, Events, and Structured Data Types have been provided.
Many of the methods and properties provided by this API are similar to those provided by the Geolocation external object. The difference lies in the use of the Geography data type (in Maps external object) instead of the Geolocation domain (in Geolocation external object) to represent geographic coordinates.
