Bounding Box Search
Search for custom geometries within a specified rectangular geographic area.
The number of geometries in the response should not exceed 1000, and the search space must not comprise more than 150 tiles. Exceeding one of the limits results in an error response. If an application needs more results returned then please contact technical customer support to work on a solution to reduce this.

A 43-byte Base64 URL-safe encoded string used for the authentication of the client application. As a logged in user, you can generate it at https://developer.here.com/projects. API Keys never expire but you can invalidate your API Keys at any time. You cannot have more than two API Keys for one app at the same time.

|app_id||Yes||A URL-safe encoded string obtained during the application registration. If you use the app ID/app code option as an authentication method, for further details see the Identity & Access Management Developer Guide.|
|app_code||Yes||A URL-safe encoded string obtained during the application registration. If you use the app ID/app code option as an authentication method, for further details see the Identity & Access Management Developer Guide.|
|layer_id||Yes|| Layer ID identifying the layers to be searched. Layer names are not case sensitive. The maximum length of a layer name and the permitted characters can be lookup up in the service via |
The bounding box upper, left, lower and right coordinates in WGS84 degrees. All geometries overlapping this rectangle will be returned.
The format is latitude,longitude;latitude,longitude.
|geom||No|| local, full or none. Specifies the geometry representation in the result. Default = local. |
Columns value for the geometry are available as defined variables.
When specified, only geometries where expression evaluates to true will be returned.
Example: filter=RATING > 3 && NAME != 'MyPlace23' && NAME.startsWith('Food')
Parameter value must be url encoded when using special characters.
This filter expression is applied after the spatial filtering, hence only to few geometries. Only for the
To avoid service overload, filter expressions must not exceed 100 characters of text and their execution on the result must not exceed 100 ms execution time.
|callback||No||Specifies the function used to wrap the JSON response.|
