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 request content type in the HTTP headers:
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 the available authentication options, see the Identity & Access Management Developer Guide.


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
