NetToolKit Geo Beta
Affordable map tiles and free-range geocoding
- Free-range geocoding
Turn your street addresses into coordinates and use them freely without map restrictions. Reverse geocoding also supported.
- Map tile server
Regularly updated and cached. Use any way you want.
Develop once and show Google Maps, Bing Maps, or our maps. Better information windows included for free.
Hybrid approach NetToolKit Geo blends open-source and open-data solutions together: OpenAddresses for accuracy in the US, OpenStreetMap for unusual queries (and international addresses), and PostGIS for US coverage. On top of those solutions, we’ve built our own address parser.
Free-range geocoding Some other geocoding providers require that you show their maps with their geocodes (or pay an expensive monthly fee). We don’t tie you down with such restrictions -- we call it free-range geocoding. You can use our portable geocoding results with others’ maps.
- Misspelled city
...since not all users know how to spell everything. For example, 444 Toyama Dr, Sunyvale, CA gets corrected to 444 Toyama Dr, Sunnyvale, CA.
- Misspelled street name
In our testing, we realized that even we didn’t know how to spell all of the streets that we were interested in. We implemented basic spell correction to try to salvage misspelled street names. For example, 2732 Augustin Dr, Santa Clara, CA gets corrected to 2732 Augustine Dr, Santa Clara, CA.
- Flexible street types
Is it Olive Street or Olive Avenue? We couldn’t remember, so we crafted our geocoder to handle mistakes. For example, 505 W. Olive Street, Sunnyvale, CA geocodes correctly even it’s actually 505 W. Olive Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA.
Do you know the address for the Grand Canyon? We don’t either. Fortunately, OpenStreetMap handles those queries, so our service does as well (Grand Canyon).
Fast and up-to-date Built with Mapnik on top of OpenStreetMap data. Pre-generated and cached for speed. Regularly updated so you don’t have to.
Permissive license Use the tiles on a public website, private website, or in a mobile app. No need to even mention our name (just OpenStreetMap, since the tiles are built on top of their data).
Affordable One credit covers one tile session -- all the tiles a specific client needs in a 15-second period.
Convenient information windowsWant to style your information windows? MapWrapper makes that easy. Want your information windows to show completely even when the marker is too close to the map border? MapWrapper supports that too.
Free tile session included Pay a credit for the use of MapWrapper and get one tile session from our tile server included for free.
