WaveMarket announced tools for even easier access to its Veriplace Cloud-Based Location Platform. The company posted open-source Software Development Kits (SDKs) in both PHP and .NET, adding to the Java SDK already available on the Veriplace Developer site.

WaveMarket's Veriplace Location Aggregation Platform is a cloud-based platform that enables developers of Facebook, Web, mobile Web, SMS, and voice applications to remotely locate tens of millions of feature phones and smartphones via Veriplace's direct connections into multiple Tier One carrier networks. Veriplace already counts nearly 1,000 developer partners building successful location-aware services on the platform as the Veriplace developer community and Veriplace carrier coverage continue to grow rapidly.

"We are pleased to make our .NET and PHP SDKs available to developers to enable easier access to our Veriplace Location Aggregation Platform," said Scott Hotes, WaveMarket CTO. "We hope this will make it easier for Web developers to create compelling services that access mobile phone location from the cloud."

The Veriplace platform provides a single cloud-based location API that eliminates the complexity of various location technologies, networks and devices. Furthermore, because the Veriplace platform leverages carrier location infrastructure, mobile devices -- both smartphones and feature phones -- can be located remotely when they are indoors or outdoors using a variety of location technologies.

Developers who want to location-enable their Web, mobile Web, SMS, voice, or even Facebook applications can explore the Veriplace Cloud-Based Location Platform at http://developer.veriplace.com.
