Getting more value from MazeMap indoor maps

With the JavaScript API, MazeMap customers and developers are now able to create new, custom map experiences that utilizes the indoor maps and data that is already within the MazeMap platform.

It is now possible to easily add custom elements on top of the maps, create custom events and react to user interactions.

Create customer-specific applications

A lot of businesses and customers that have app developers, wonder how they can integrate the MazeMap indoor maps into the custom applications and web services they are making.

Now, it is just a few lines of code, and they can have a working, interactive indoor map within their own application.

Built upon Leaflet

The MazeMap JS API is built upon Leafletthe leading open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps.

For developers who already know and love this easy mapping library, you will have no problems using the extended indoor variant, which is the MazeMap JS API.

Supporting plugins

Because of the underlying Leaflet integration, we support using many of the very same map plugins that exists for standard Leaflet maps. Examples of using such plugins with the MazeMap JS API is documented on the plugin examples page.
