Introduction to the Koordinates API


The Koordinates APIs allow users to query data hosted on Koordinates via simple HTTP requests. They are accessible to any user who has a valid login to Koordinates.


You need an API key to access the hosted data, and this key needs to be passed with each request via the key GET parameter.

It's a good idea to use separate keys for each application you build. API Keys can be generated by heading to the API page under your user Dashboard.

Available APIs:

  • Vector Query - look up a point location and get information from one or more vector layers about nearby features.
  • Raster Query - look up a point location and get back information from raster/grid data about the values in each image band. 
  • Set Query - look up data for multiple layers in a set.
