CartoVista Software Development Kit (SDK)
The CartoVista Software Developer Kit (SDK) is a set of standard Application Programming Interface (API) functions for developers to extend the CartoVista solution and develop specific functionality for their website.
The CartoVista SDK provides for developers an off-the-shelf component for the CartoVista Viewer to seamlessly create web applications with unparalleled interactivity. Information technology integrators and multimedia developers can use the component directly in their Adobe Flash/Flex/AIR projects.
This rapid mapping application development empowers developers with a unique collection of thematic mapping-related components and Flex code samples. For example, using the SDK, developers can implement their own methods of defining a CartoVista thematic map. A developer could easily develop a form with a drop down list where the user can pick a predefined theme. Using the SDK, a developer can configure the thematic analysis parameters based on the user choice. Another example would be to develop a custom information window (photos, videos, details) that is displayed when the user clicks on a point on the map.
