Naver Maps API Released

Posted by Channy Yun

Naver Open API announced Korean Maps API. It’s first thing to offer local map by service provider in Korea. (maybe in the world?) It resembles Google Maps API by Naver Maps API overview.

You can catch an mouse event and add controls such as zoom in/out, save button and annotation etc. A source of map images was given by Sundo Soft, an exclusive ESRI’s korean vendor. Naver customized it and included it to their open APIs. This map use not standard longitude/latitude but (korean own) Katel coordinate system. Maybe it will be hacked formula between global and katel coordinate.

Anyway it helps to mash up between maps and various ideas in Korea.
