LocationSmart announced that it will use AND as its supplier of maps for use. AND is a worldwide distributor of digital maps as well as services based on location. Likewise, LocationSmart is the largest Location-as-a-Service (or LaaS for short) company in the world.
Recently, LocationSmart had been looking to expand its use into other markets, including those of gaming, lottery, and ecommerce. Their new partnership with AND and the use of AND’s maps will help them enter smoothly into these additional markets.
LocationSmart specifically chose AND’s Digital World Map Shoreline and their International Administrative Boundaries for use in new compliance APIs. LocationSmart’s Smart Zone API has expanded to include compliance checks with various boundaries, including global and country lines as well as customer-determined boundary option. The new API – the first to show development by LocationSmart and AND in conjunction – will be rolled out to customers across the globe beginning in the latter half of this year.

Their services span both indoor and outdoor use with the largest global presence in the marketplace. They also offer a large amount of privacy consent methods in order to ensure easy user adoption and consumer security.
Founded in 1984, AND has a large array of digital maps that cover the entire globe and location-based services. AND focuses on automatic and manual updates to their maps in order to provide location intelligence and further the aims of businesses worldwide.
Within the Netherlands, AND is one of the oldest software corporations and have made plenty of advances in their field with such items as the LBS Platform and MapFusion.
