Map Tile API Developer's Guide


The resource named copyright handles requests for copyright information about different map tiles.

A typical request against this resource must comply with the following formula.

/maptile/2.1/copyright/{map id}
Note: Metadata requests retrieve information specific to the base URLs they target. This information cannot be used in subsequent requests that use other base URLs. For example, to obtain a base map version, use metadata from the response to a request addressed to the Base Map Tiles base URL, but for a version of an aerial map, use metadata from the response to a request addressed to the Aerial Tiles base URL.

In both output formats (XML and JSON), the copyright information associated with the different view schemes, zoom level ranges, and geographical areas is shown. Variant copyrights are defined by the bounding boxes and the relevant zoom level range. The default copyright information of the view scheme has no restriction elements and is therefore valid for all remaining areas and zoom levels.

The map id used in the request should be the same one as the one used for making the requests. For example it can be a hash value or newest.

The copyright information must be retrieved for every pool separately.

The table below describes the parameters that can be used to formulate a copyright information request.

Mandatory Query Parameters

The following table lists the mandatory parameters that need to be specified with every request. Not specifying these parameters will make the system reject the request.
