Nokia Maps API supported web browser (basically any modern web browser)

Important note about maps credentials

Nokia provides several services options within the Maps API offering. The service is free to use, but you must obtain and use authentication and authorization credentials to use the services. Please read the Terms and Conditions and check the Pricing Plans page to decide which business model best fits your needs. Authentication requires unique Maps API credentials, namely an AppId and a token. You can get these credentials free for free following the instructions here


The API definition:

new nokia.maps.map.Circle (center, radius, props)

In the example below, we create a simple circle with coloured fill and outline.

Example code

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7; IE=EmulateIE9"/>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="UTF-8"
<div id="mapContainer" style="z-index: -1; left:0px; top:0px; width: 100%; height: 80%; position: absolute;"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
// Don't forget to set your API credentials
// Replace with your appId and token which you can obtain when you
// register on http://api.developer.nokia.com/
nokia.Settings.set( "appId", "YOUR APP ID GOES HERE");
nokia.Settings.set( "authenticationToken", "YOUR AUTHENTICATION TOKEN GOES HERE");
var mapContainer = document.getElementById("mapContainer");
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(mapContainer, {
center: [19.119, 72.8957],
zoomLevel: 4,
components:[new nokia.maps.map.component.Behavior()]
map.objects.add(new nokia.maps.map.Circle(
// The center or the circle will be on longitude 50.0361, latitude 8.5619
[19.15, 73.91],
// The radius of the circle in meters
pen: {
strokeColor: "#829f",
lineWidth: 2
brush: {
color: "#829f"
