Autodesk announced the addition of content from CustomWeather and Wcities to the Location Services Developer Program. Autodesk developers can now utilize this premium content in the development of their own cutting–edge location-smart services. With CustomWeather and Wcities, Autodesk is furthering its commitment to the developer community by offering the best tools available in the rapidly expanding location-based services market.
“By offering our local weather information with the highest level of detailed coverage, accuracy and customization, we provide developers a tremendous value-add,” said Murray Armstrong, vice president of Sales and Business Development at CustomWeather. “Not only does our weather information cover every corner of the globe in multiple languages including English, French, Spanish, German, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Greek, Traditional Chinese and Japanese, but all of our content is location-tagged so it is easy to get the information that you need by simply knowing coordinate information, city names or postal codes.”
“With over 450,000 enhanced points of interest for 1,900 cities around the world, Wcities’ content provides relevant information on when, where and what you need,” commented Fraser Campbell, director of Business Development at Wcities. “We’re delighted to provide Autodesk’s developers in North America and Europe with access to information on attractions, restaurants, nightlife, hotels, shopping, events and much more in all 1,900 cities, in over 10 languages. This is powerful stuff.”
In addition to this value added content, the Autodesk Location Services Developer Program offers geoservices and location privacy management platform architecture, a standards-based application programming interface (API) for the Web and handsets, as well as technical documentation and support.
