The location as a service provider LocationSmart recently announced that they would be leasing maps from AND to fill their needs with Compliance Services.
The maps that are now being leased from AND are their International Administrative Boundaries maps as well as their Digital World Map Shoreline. LocationSmart recently expanded its API that is known as Smart Zone.
This API uses these maps to help international customers with compliance checks. These maps can use boundaries that are specified by the customer or ones that have already been pre-configured by LocationSmart. By using these APIs, their clients are able to check in real time to see if their customers are within certain boundaries. As of last year, they have already had customers implement in their businesses.
LocationSmart will be using these compliance services that are enabled by AND maps to run global checks to see if the mobile device being used to make a transaction is within their boundaries. Read more: LocationSmart | Wikipedia and LocationSmart | Owler
