Telogis, developer of a software platform providing location-based services for truck fleets, has issued version 3.0 of the mapping engine known as GeoBase SDK. The tool now supports real-time navigation for commercial vehicles on both laptops and mobile operating systems. Users can develop customized dispatching and navigation systems using traffic, commercial vehicle and turn-restrictions data, as well as custom route strategies. Version 3.0 permits the addition of geospatial functionality, including turn-by-turn navigation, to applications via a Microsoft .NET application programming interface (API). New features of the GeoBase Mobile SDK include consumer-grade point-of-interest search and address entry, 2.5d map views, and the ability to import and overlay custom data sets, integrate traffic-flow data and route commercial vehicles. In addition, the new version introduces read/write spatial data stores, which can be updated in real time and queried according to customer-defined conditions.
