These travel guides, developed in association with National Geographic, and powered by Elebase, let you explore the places that locals most respect and recommend. Imagine traveling through the Sierra Nevada, the Four Corners, the Bahamas, or upstate New York fully informed with the best suggestions of locals who know the place best.
The Elebase API delivers your responses with an ultra-fast global Content Delivery Network. That means that when a user requests data or files for your application, the data or files are served automatically from a CDN node nearest to, and most efficient, for the user.
With Elebase, it is easy to request data based on geo parameters. This can be very useful for applications that need to deploy geo-fencing, or search for data based on geospatial attributes.
You can use Elebase as your entire back end or as a part of your technology stack. Here are five specific features that might make your life easier or that you may want to incorporate into your next project, along with videos that provide a quick view into each of them.
Community trail systems are an important asset to a community for the quality of life of residents, attracting visitors, and for economic development. However, if residents are not aware of where trails and parks are, these assets can fall short in delivering their benefits.
Making your data available through an API can make your data and functionality accessible and understood by many developers, as long as they are provided the keys to access the data. That means millions of developers worldwide are potentially available to build and enhance applications that use your data.
Methods and mediums for publishing and displaying your information will emerge that we have not even contemplated yet. Tightly coupling the structure of your data with how it’s presented in a single medium is almost always a regrettable decision.
There is a wide spectrum of solutions for structuring and managing your data, with Content Management Systems (CMS) at one end and custom databases at the other.
Regardless of what digital tool or solution you are building—a website, a smartphone application, an application for a wearable device, or anything else—data is what makes an application useful and valuable. I use the word data in a very broad way. In some cases the word content is used. Either term refers to the information (including files) that your application is either gathering, publishing, or processing.
Do you ever think, "How on Earth did I get here?" I do. A lot. Sometimes it's while pondering how my curiosities in life led me to this moment in time, like now—sharing this really cool thing with you that we created, called Elebase. But most of the time I find myself asking that question because I wandered off from where I was initially going.
I get lost. I get curious. I explore.
