Power and flexibility

CartoType can use your map data, or we can supply data and create maps for you. Maps can be offline, saving time and money. You can use CartoType to render the entire map at any scale, or create pre-rendered tiles at different scales, or a combination of those methods. Use on-line data if you like. You can overlay fast-changing data such as weather and traffic density with complete flexibility. Look and feel is completely customisable, and consistent over all platforms and devices. Supported development systems include Microsoft Visual Studio, .Net, XCode for iOS and MacOS, Qt, and Eclipse for Android.
