Carlsbad, CA – October 31, 2018 – LocationSmartⓇ, the world’s largest Location-as-a-Service (LaaS) company, announced today the selection of AND, a global provider of digital maps and location-based services, as its supplier of maps for its location platform. The inclusion of global map boundaries bolsters LocationSmart’s compliance services for international use for applications such as in gaming, lottery, ecommerce and financial services.
LocationSmart chose AND’s Digital World Map Shoreline and International Administrative Boundaries to use in its compliance APIs. The company has expanded its Smart Zone API that allows a business to confirm that the location of a device obtained via one of various location methods is in or out of a given boundary. This API now includes compliance checks against global country boundaries along with other pre-configured and customer-specific boundary options. LocationSmart plans to have the first of its international customers using this compliance service in Q4 of this year.
