Portal:HERE Maps RESTful Map API
This portal contains articles about the RESTful Map API (all articles which have both Category:HERE Maps and Category:HTTP). The RESTful Map API is a simple RESTful web service that brings static Nokia Map images to any Web-enabled device using the standard HTTP protocol. Ask questions about this API in the discussion board.
When to use the Restful Map API
The RESTful Map API is a static mapping API. Using the API involves sending a single http request, and retrieves a single image in response. It is typically used to a a simple, quick snapshot of a location. The maps are typcially not refreshed.
This API is not the correct choice if repeated updates of the map are required. Nokia offers other alternative APIs described in the Category:HERE Maps which are better suited for interactive maps.
