WCDMA Positioning

User Story

The user wants to determine the WGS-84 compliant coordinates defined by the WCDMA information in the POST body.


The code block below demonstrates a POST request to define the geocoordinates as specified by the WCDMA information in the POST body. You need to set the following HTTP Header: Content-Type: application/json.
This POST request requires the following POST body.
  "wcdma": [{
  "mcc": 262,
  "mnc": 7,
  "cid": 14674663,
  "nmr": [
    { "uarfcndl": 10786, "psc": 149},
    { "uarfcndl": 10762, "psc": 211}
Note: This example uses a HERE API Key to authenticate your request. For information on other possible options, see Authentication Guide. For examples of how to use the other authentication options with the Positioning API, see Authentication Examples.


The response to the request contains:
  • lat: WGS-84 compliant latitude coordinate
  • long: WGS-84 compliant longitude coordinate
  • accuracy: Radius of the uncertainty circle around the position in meters
  "location": {
  "lat": 52.5186685,
  "lng": 13.37713954,
  "accuracy": 396
