API Overview

Location Studio Web Services APIs provide a variety of location based services supporting a wide range of devices and applications. The APIs are designed for multiple platforms including web, mobile, and low-power/low-bandwidth IoT devices. All APIs support the POST method for requests. APIs support JSON, XML, and in some cases binary data message formats providing the developers with options for optimized communication and/or rapid development and integration. Each API has documentation and a test page.

All APIs return a standard HTTP status code to indicate success or error. Please see the listing of Error Codes.

All APIs require an API Key parameter (APIKEY) as part of the request. The APIKEY identifies your application to our system. For developer accounts, each APIKEY is limited to a certain number of transactions per month depending on the API being called.
