Map Tile API Developer's Guide

Version

This version resource handles requests for software version details.

The following URL shows the format of a version request and the table below explains each parameter.

https://{1-4}.base.maps.cit.api.here.com
/maptile/2.1/version
?app_id={YOUR_APP_ID}
&app_code={YOUR_APP_CODE}
&{param}={value}
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.

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.
