We're now part of the Scout and Telenav family. While we make some changes to our website, please know that our products are still the same skobbler products you love!

Welcome to the dev zone.

Unleash the power of OpenStreetMap (OSM) for your product or service. Our powerful SDK allows you to turn your Mobile and web ideas into reality. It’s easy, it’s cheap, it’s versatile – so what are you waiting for?

The Tour

Get a glimpse at what our SDK can do for you. You’ll be surprised. In a good way. And if you think this is good, wait until you hear about our prices.

Phone

Our vector-map engine is second-to-none, if you expect performance, flexibility, and stunning map visuals as well as features galore for your Mobile product.

Tablet

Your customers will love your tailor-made tablet solutions based on our SDK. Simply because they work great. And look great. As will your solution.

Desktop

Our web server is fiendishly quick. And thanks to Amazon Cloudfront, you'll never worry about scaling. Ever.

Map customization

Let our map be the canvas for your story. We enable you to make the map look and feel like it is truly part of your product and corporate identity. It's your map, not just any map. Check out our out-of-the-box map styles below for starters.

Routing & Turn-By-Turn Navigation

Rock-solid guidance - on top of OpenStreetMap

Routing

Our routing engine architect started building these things ages ago. And he just got better each year. Now he is one of the best in the industry.

Our current engine is his masterpiece. It is quite potent with alternative routes, offline rerouting, multiple travel modes (e-bikes are among them) and many more functionalities being included.

Give it a spin and see for yourself.

Turn-By-Turn Navigation

It doesn't matter, whether you decide to use our routing engine or prefer your own custom route provider (GPX routes). Or whether your service runs online or offline. Our SDK lets your product idea become a reality.

Even more so, as customizable multilingual visual advices and audio advices come as standard.

RealReach & Heatmaps

Going way beyond the extra mile.

RealReach

Ok, so you want to go somewhere within 15 minutes of work. What are your options? You could travel as far as 20 km away, if you took the highway, or just 5 km, if you decided to go downtown.
Our RealReach algorithm will compute all of this in an instant at any time (so you don’t have to).

Heatmaps

Visualize what is most important to you and your users ‐ crisply and clearly. Which is the area with the most free parking places right now? Or the most restaurants? Or the most people checking in this very moment?

Use your data to create spectacular user experiences on top of your map.

The Showcases

Great companies already do great things with our SDK. Here‘s what they have to say about it.

The smart drive 2 app turns your iPhone* into a connected information and multimedia system optimized for your smart car.

"Thanks to skobblers vector map renderer we were able to dramatically reduce the size of our offline "City Packs". Integration went flawlessly and we had no performance or stability issues across devices." Dietmar, CTO

"Their OpenStreetMaps SDK is guaranteed to be the best tool of its kind around, it's very easy to use and it's constantly evolving. The first time our development team had contact with it, we almost didn't need any documentation at all to make it work." Alexandru, CTO

"The Scout Maps API provides the detail and ease of use that we need to continue to provide great service to the worldwide community of athletes on Strava" Mark, CTO
