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.
