Hungary-based Kishonti Informatics was awarded the third runner-up prize in the 2009 NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge® for its NaviGenie™ Mobile 3D Navigation Framework. Since then, 3D content and mapping enablers have really become a hot topic. Earlier this year, Kishonti launched an easy-to-use navigation SDK.
The NaviGenie SDK provides optimized, scalable data services and a high-performance hardware accelerated map visualization engine, allowing you to add 3D NAVTEQ maps® and routing to your mobile applications and get to market faster on multiple platforms.
Advantages of NaviGenie SDK:
- Multi-platform support: Easy to integrate with native UI controls on iOS®, Android™, Linux™ and Windows® platforms.
- Fast to market: Fully featured reference application minimizes development time and cost.
- On- and off-board: Efficient data compression requires minimal bandwidth and/or storage space.
- Cloud-based maps: Instant global coverage for off-board services.
- Performance: Hardware accelerated, customizable fully 3D map engine on all platforms.
Features and Services
NaviGenie SDK includes the standard location-based functionalities such as:
- Map visualization
- Address lookup
- POI search
These features are configurable independently from each other to operate on-board or in the cloud.
On-board services provide instant access to maps without network connection. The efficient map compression minimizes the storage requirements on mobile devices.
Off-board mode requires minimal bandwidth and a very small client application to use global map services instantly.
Mix and match on- and off-board services are also possible in the same application: start with a small off-board application first and download on-board data sets incrementally over the air later when required.
Development with NaviGenie SDK
NaviGenie SDK is available for iOS, Android, Linux and Windows platforms and provides seamless user interface integration.
The multi-level API is very flexible and supports the primary native languages to help developers integrate with their existing libraries written in C++, Objective-C or Java®.
The SDK includes documentation, tutorials for iOS, Android and Windows PC as well as an extensive reference application, making it easy to learn how to build full-featured commercial apps in a matter of days. The tutorials come with an instantly buildable XCode® project for iOS devices and an Eclipse™ project for Android devices.
