New Technical Concept – Position Matching versus Locations By Position

In the new version of the documentation of PTV Developer Geocoding & Places API and Map Matching API you find a new technical concept explaining  the difference between Postion Matching and Location By Position end point.

We often get questions which endpoint should be used for which use case. Therfore we like to provide this concept to answer this question in our documentation.

The concept Position Matching versus Locations By Position lines out the basic concept, the features of each end point and the return values.
There is also a suggestion which end point can be used for what use case.

You can test PTV Developer for free by registering a MyPTV account and activating the product on the website.

To keep yourself updated about upcoming releases and news you can use the subscribe function on the right hand side.

Use Bing maps – How to insert satellite imagery

Downloading Bing map tiles from Microsoft is available for PTV Developer Components. Avoiding misunderstandings only satellite imagery is downloadable in order to combine these map tiles with PTV Maps.

The document we uploaded to the PTV Components customer area (go to customer area > PTV xServer > documents) describes what to do in order to integrate satellite imagery e.g. displaying in web applications.
