Traffic - Get Traffic Incident Tile

Traffic Incident Tile

Applies to: S0 and S1 pricing tiers.

This service serves 256 x 256 pixel tiles showing traffic incidents. All tiles use the same grid system. Because the traffic tiles use transparent images, they can be layered on top of map tiles to create a compound display. Traffic tiles render graphics to indicate traffic on the roads in the specified area.

subscription-key
query
  • string

One of the Azure Maps keys provided from an Azure Map Account. Please refer to this article for details on how to manage authentication.

t
query
  • string

Reference value for the state of traffic at a particular time, obtained from the Viewport API call, trafficModelId attribute in trafficState field. It is updated every minute, and is valid for two minutes before it times out. Use -1 to get the most recent traffic information. Default: most recent traffic information.

Request Header

Name Required Type Description
x-ms-client-id
  • string

Specifies which account is intended for usage in conjunction with the Azure AD security model. It represents a unique ID for the Azure Maps account and can be retrieved from Azure Maps management plane Account API. To use Azure AD security in Azure Maps see the following articles for guidance.

Responses

Name Type Description
200 OK

OK

400 Bad Request

Bad request: one or more parameters were incorrectly specified or are mutually exclusive.

401 Unauthorized

Access denied due to invalid subscription key or invalid Azure Active Directory bearer token. Make sure to provide a valid key for an active Azure subscription and Maps resource. Otherwise, verify the WWW-Authenticate header for error code and description of the provided AAD bearer token.

Headers

  • WWW-Authenticate: string
403 Forbidden

Permission, capacity, or authentication issues.

404 Not Found

Not Found: the requested resource could not be found, but it may be available again in the future.

Security

azure_auth

These are the Azure Active Directory OAuth2 Flows. When paired with Azure Role Based Access control it can be used to control access to Azure Maps REST APIs. Azure Role based access controls are used to designate access to one or more Azure Maps resource account or sub-resources. Any user, group, or service principal can be granted access via a built in role or a custom role composed of one or more permissions to Azure Maps REST APIs.

To implement scenarios we recommend viewing authentication concepts. In summary, this security definition provides a solution for modeling application(s) via objects capable of access control on specific APIs and scopes.

Note

  • This security definition requires the use of the x-ms-client-id header to indicate which Azure Maps resource the application is requesting access to. This can be acquired from the Maps management API.
  • The Authorization URL is specific to the Azure public cloud instance. Sovereign clouds have unique Authorization URLs and Azure Active directory configurations.
  • The Azure role based access control is configured from the Azure management plane via Azure portal, Powershell, CLI, Azure SDKs, or REST APIs.
  • Usage of the Azure Maps Web SDK allows for configuration based setup of an application for multiple use cases.
  • Currently Azure Active Directory v1.0 tokens are supported.

Type: oauth2
Flow: implicit
Authorization URL: https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/oauth2/authorize

subscription-key

This is a shared key which is provisioned when creating an Azure Maps resource through the Azure management plane via Azure portal, Powershell, CLI, Azure SDKs, or REST APIs. With this key, any application is authorized to access all REST APIs. In other words, these can currently be treated as master keys to the account which they are issued for. For publicly exposed applications our recommendation is to use server to server access of Azure Maps REST APIs where this key can be securely stored.

Type: apiKey
