Traffic API Developer's Guide

Traffic Tiles

This section offers examples of requests for traffic tile overlays from the Traffic API.

Deprecation Notice

HERE has changed the way traffic tiles are served. Live traffic tiles have been deprecated in the Traffic API and are now delivered by the Map Tile API infrastructure. Documentation on live traffic tiles is part of the Map Tile API documentation.

This does not affect traffic pattern tiles, which continue to be served by the Traffic API.

The following general request patterns are supported:

Table 1. Traffic Tile Request Patterns
Addressing Scheme URL Pattern
[Z]/[X]/[Y] {tile-base-url}/{path}/{resource}/{format}/{resource}/{zoom}/{column}/{row}/{size}?
Quadkey {tile-base-url}/{path}/{resource}/quadkeytraffic?quadkey={quadkey}
