New geocoding data and geocoding improvements

In the new version of the PTV Developer Geocoding & Places API V1.3.1 you have the possibility to use the newest geocoding data available from Here. The new geocoding data is based on the Here data delivery from Q1/2022. 

With V1.3.1 and V1.3.0 we released some geocoding improvements:

  • Missing postal code map data does affect the total score less than before.
  • Added support for additional iana language tags.
  • If the results are ambiguous because only few input words are given (city, postal code), then we now return a longer list than before.

How to build a simple routing app

One of the first things you can do with our RESTful APIs is to implement a simple routing app: Enter two addresses, find the optimal route between these addresses and display the result on a map. In doing so you get a first impression how easy the APIs of PTV Developer could be used and what else is possible.

The new tutorial A-B Routing shows all the implementation steps, provides the complete source code and the running app for demonstration purposes. That takes just a few minutes of your time!
