The best place to start is to jump right into the MapData Services API documentation where you will find useful information on functionality, security and example code. We will be using the “Tile” API endpoint, I have included a screenshot to demonstrate how to navigate to this page.
Sometimes you feel the need for speed. At MapData Services we’re always looking for ways to improve our products and services. Recently, we’ve introduced a change to our Foundation Map that has massively improved the performance by up to 60 per cent in some instances…

I’ve been designing the look and feel of MapData Services’ maps now for more years than I care to remember, and I have always had to be conscious of trying to develop a style that will satisfy a broad range of requirements within a single map – juggling the requirements of many, in reality means probably only meeting the needs of a few.
In my world, the time it takes to create millions of map tile images means we’ve been a little gun-shy on offering up customised design for each client or offering, it was all (simply put), too much!
