    Ovi Maps Tile Service?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to directly access the maps.ovi.com map image tiles from a tile server so I can use them to create a new mapping application?

    Is there documentation about licensing for that?

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    hmmm AFAIK there is no APIs available in symbian c++, but the there is the OVI SDK which is also not available publicly i guess.

    Yep, currently no APIs for Ovi maps are available, so you can not also access teh tile server images.

    I've discovered that I can call the tiles directly through the url format http://maptile.maps.svc.ovi.com/maptiler/maptile/newest/normal.day/{z}/{x}/{y}/256/png8 but I need to know where it is documented about service terms for using the tiles directly in this fashion.

    there are no documentation, since it should not be used that way by developers, even if that code would work now, the the server configurations etc, can be changed anytime without any notice.

    Hi there,

    To access map image tiles, you can use the Nokia Map Image API, direct link to information about it is here:
