Description

What is OpenLayers?

An opensource javascript library to load, display and render maps from multiple sources on web pages.

What is TileStache?

TileStache is a Python-based server application that can serve up map tiles based on rendered geographic data. You might be familiar with TileCache, the venerable open source WMS server from MetaCarta. TileStache is similar, but we hope simpler and better-suited to the needs of designers and cartographers.

What is Pathfinder?

Pathfinder is a new real-time routing service in public beta. Pathfinder calculates routes for transportation services. These routes are updated in real time as users make transportation or delivery requests. Through our SDKs, applications can subscribe to routes as they change in response to user requests.
