PTV xMAP SERVER
DIGITAL MAPS API for SAP Applications
Display geographical data and traffic information on interactive and customizable maps
What are digital maps good for?
Digital rendering – often referred to as digital mapping – is the process of visualizing geographic data on digital maps. While early digital maps contained the same cartographic information as scanned versions of paper maps, the expansion of GPS has added many functionalities to digital maps, like the possibility to include points of interest and other location-based datasets. Digital rendering is a prerequisite for all geographical and logistical functions and crucial for tasks such as vehicle routing and optimization. Display geographic data and traffic information on customized digital maps to enable vehicle routing and optimization with the PTV xServer Digital Maps API.
PTV Digital Maps API enables you to configure the map display based on your requirements and taste. Would you like to start working with the API immediately without making any modifications? No problem. PTV offers several pre-defined map profiles that are carefully designed to fit most standard use cases as an out-of-the-box-feature.

Request single layers to build your own hybrid map. Choose between pre-defined layers (e.g. background, labels, additional content layers displaying information like truck-specific attributes or live traffic information). Change the order of layers to draw the polyline of a route between streets and labels.
