With this latest addition to the application programming interface (API), FiberLocator now delivers geographic feature information, along with map images. API users having access to this level of GIS data opens greater opportunities for mapping analysis, especially at the critical last mile of connectivity.

Putting it in more technical terms, this enhancement to the FiberLocator platform enables GeoJSON objects to be utilized in any GIS software to allow for various mapping and geospatial analyses, meaning customers will now be able to have the option of retrieving a GeoJSON FeatureCollection over a small area based on a latitude and longitude for a specific radius or around a single address for a specified radius.

This enhancement is significant because while we have always provided map tiles and other data in the API, now we are including the GeoJSON format that makes the data more accessible for analysis and control, says Senior Product Manager, Karen Wiens. It is really fascinating to see how far the application has come and evolved over the years as we are continuously making improvements. This update is just the latest example of that.

If you want to learn more about the enhancement and how to use the new features with your GIS software, FiberLocator is hosting a free webinar on April 7, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. EST to present use cases. For more details, visit https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8584732124590563852.
