WLAN Positioning

User Story

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


The code block below demonstrates a POST request to get the geocoordinates defined by the WLAN 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.
 "wlan": [
  {"mac": "8C-1A-BF-20-66-AD"},
  {"mac": "A0-E4-53-E9-66-A7"},
  {"mac": "AC-4B-C8-34-F7-01"},
  {"mac": "A0-21-95-57-79-06"},
  {"mac": "00-18-56-51-54-FB"},
  {"mac": "10-30-47-D2-54-55"},
  {"mac": "B8-6B-23-09-87-B1"},
  {"mac": "F4-55-95-11-2C-C1"}
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": 52.5185857,
  "lng": 13.37622989,
  "accuracy": 100
