Announcing the new deCarta developer platform
We are excited to be releasing a brand new developer system. It's a significant overhaul of the functionality of our DevZone and we hope you like it. This new developer system is designed to enable you to quickly build your location based applications with maps, routing, geocoding, and other advanced LBS features that can be deployed across multiple mobile operating systems and browsers for mobile phones, tablets, desktops and other location-enabled devices.
Here are some of the features available to you:1. REST API
The new REST API is the next generation deCarta technology to replace our existing XML Web Services. The REST API exposes all of the core geospatial functionality of the deCarta Drill Down Server and the new deCarta L2 search engine as well as a whole suite of connected services. Learn more
2. New and improved Search & Geocoding services
The new deCarta platform offers a robust next generation geospatial search and geocoding solution offering features like:
- pure single line search (fuzzy poi+geocoding)
- poi only search
- geocoding only search
- poi category search
- search along a route
- routed search
- typeahead support
- point/radius, geo biasing, and 'needle in haystack' options
3. Single line search typeahead widget
5. New billing system
We have also integrated a new billing system into the devzone. Now, you can add up one or more credit cards to your devZone account and set them up for monthly billing for each of your applications. Also, you can view your monthly invoices for all your applications that are currently in production. All these new features are available in the enhanced My Account page.
We have also simplified the process of moving your applications in and out of production. You no longer have one API key for development and another for production. There is just one key per application. When you are ready to move your application to production, simply set the toggle to "Prod" in the "Production Mode" section of the My Applications page. Setting the toggle back to 'Dev" will immediately move your application out of production and back into development.
Please Note that daily usage limits will be enforced on applications in development. Refer to the Terms of Service document to learn more about the daily usage limits on the devZone.
6. New APIs for Connected Services (e.g. parking, weather,etc.)
We now have new APIs that you can use to integrate real-time traffic, local weather, parking and local gas prices info into your applications. Learn more
COMING SOON: New Android and iOS Vector map SDKs are currently in development and will be available soon.
Attention Existing Users:

The REST API exposes all of the core geospatial functionality of the deCarta Drill Down Server and the new deCarta L2 search engine as well as a whole suite of connected services.
