Traffic API Developer's Guide

Traffic Incident Data

For a simple example of how to request traffic incident data, see Quick Start. This section contains examples that illustrate further common use cases for requesting traffic incident data from the Traffic API.

The Traffic API supports the following general request patterns with traffic incident data requests:

Table 1. Traffic Incident Request Patterns
Addressing scheme URL pattern
[Z]/[X]/[Y] {base-url}/{path}/{resource}/{format}/{zoom}/{column}/{row}?
Quadkey {base-url}/{path}/{resource}.{format}?quadkey={quadkey}
Bounding box {base-url}/{path}/{resource}.{format}?bbox={bounding box coordinates}
Proximity {base-url}/{path}/{resource}.{format}?prox={proximity coordinates}
Corridor coordinates {base-url}/{path}/{resource}.{format}?corridor={corridor coordinates}
