Map Image API
The Map Image API is a web service API that offers easy and fast access to pre-rendered map images for all regions of the world. You can use this service to display a specific geographical position and points of interest. To retrieve a map image, the user formulates a request that combines the URL and a set of parameters to specify details such as position, radius, zoom level, map type, etc. A request, consisting of a URL and parameters, can be shared via SMS, and you can embed the resulting map images in your own applications.
