Traffic API Developer's Guide

Traffic Flow Data with Max Functional Class Filter

The user wants to obtain traffic flow data for an area around Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The area is identified using the [Z]/[X]/[Y] addressing scheme, with map zoom level 9. The response includes data in XML format, filtered to only include functional road class types no higher than 2.


The [Z]/[X]/[Y] values are 9, 268, and 173 respectively. The maxfunctionalclass parameter is 2.


The following code block shows the response the request for traffic flow data with a maximum functional class filter. Note that this response is abbreviated because of space limitations. In reality, the XML may contain a very large number of <RW> elements.
