Additionally, the entire interface is CSS stylable and can be easily modified. Even the mouse cursors in the application can be changed with basic image files to allow you to completely customize the editor experience.
The Scribble Maps API was built from the ground up using native technologies so the editor can run in both a mobile and desktop environment.
The API detects if a user is on a mobile platform and modifies the user experience so that the editor can function in an environment that does not have roll overs. So you can feel confident that the map editing portion of your web app will be functional regardless of if it is being opened on a desktop or on a tablet.
Dashboard / Map Management
The dashboard allows you to not only manage things like markers available to an API implementation but also which license you want associated it with a particular implentation. With a single change in the dashboard you can move from Google to Bing to Mapquest and then back again.
When the API is linked up with a project maps can be saved and grouped and accessed through our dashboard. Groups can be created and removed, or made secure. Developers then have the capability to request and list maps based on groups.
See below for the basic code to get the editor into your app. While it is not necessary to use the API, you can procure a project id from admin.scribblemaps.com which will allow you to set markers, define licenses, and also create and modify map management groups. Using the API anonymously will save maps globally, however, you are not required to save data to our system and it is possible to save map data directly to your own database. Check out our playground for all kinds of examples you can test.
Built by Us, Improved by You
We love developers and know that our API is usless without developers working with it and telling us what we can improve or make easier. We developed the API along side of developers using the API in real projects.
We take suggestions seriously and criticisms even more seriously. Can something be better? Are we missing a really important or cool feature? Please, let us know.
