deCarta (formerly Telcontar) announced the availability of deCarta Hosted Web Services, a non-branded online service that enables fast development and deployment of customized, state-of-the-art location-enhanced Internet and mobile applications.
deCarta's Hosted Web Services is a solution for creating rich, high-performance AJAX fluid maps for location-enabled applications. It is an online geospatial service powered by deCarta's geospatial software platform, the Drill Down Server (DDS) that gives developers the ability to develop and deploy location-based applications faster and with more flexibility. deCarta's service enables developers without extensive geospatial knowledge to quickly produce location-enhanced applications integrating draggable maps, proximity search, routes and driving directions. Developers can customize the mapping user experience to create market differentiation specific to their application or local requirements.
The service is the commercial version of deCarta's free Developer Zone, which serves over three hundred application developers and has provided the geospatial platform for numerous award-winning applications during its 10 months of operation. deCarta's DDS is the geospatial software platform utilized by major Internet map providers such as Ask.com, Google and Yahoo, as well as mobile LBS developers like Appello, Networks in Motion, TeleNav and many others that are deployed at carriers such as Sprint and Verizon.
