Week 06

As discussed in the last meeting with Claudio Silva (Thesis Advisor) and DeAngela Duff, I did research on the main SDK’s for making the app prototype.

The options were:

  • Leaflet (An open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps)
  • Map box (An open source mapping platform for custom designed maps. Our APIs and SDKs are the building blocks to integrate location into any mobile or web app)
  • Open Layers (An open source javascript library to load, display and render maps from multiple sources on web pages)

After playing around and look up for comments and references in the web I found that MapBox appears to be the strongest candidate for developing the app prototype due to his easy access SDK, strong documentation and compatibility with both web based and mobile apps.
