Traffic API Developer's Guide

Selecting a Tile Color Depth

The user wants to obtain a traffic tile, using the quadkey addressing scheme. The color depth of the tile delivered by the response is to be 8 bits.

The request follows the same pattern as requests for traffic flow tile overlays, but requires the res parameter to select the tile size and/or depth to determine the required color depth.

Request

The quadkey value is 12020330 and the depth is 8bit.
