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.


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


The response to the request that stipulates the tile color depth delivers the tile shown below.
