AutoNavi, China’s leading mapping service fully acquired by Alibaba, has taken the wraps off LBS+, an open platform for location based services. Now serving a broad range of fields like car rental, O2O, smart devices and environmental protection, the platform provides location based service solution plans that integrate development kit, big data, and relevant services and functions.

At the press conference, the company also announced tie-ups with car rental service Zuche, NGO Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs, massage booking service Kungfu Bear, and drone developer Ehang.

In addition to AutoNavi’s free digital map database and mobile LBS development kits, LBS+ features location big data analytic services, helping clients gain insights on customer numbers, customer location and hot areas. AutoNavi’s cloud computing service was also integrated, to enable data storage, management and analysis.
