Request URL Format

The URL of a REST API request has the following general form:



  • host is the hostname of the server hosting the services.
  • port is the optional TCP port number (if the services do not receive requests via the default HTTP port).
  • ServiceName is the name of the service you are requesting. For example MappingService, FeatureService, or MapTilingService.
  • pathParams is the name of a resource or method or inline parameter you are requesting.
  • matrixParam is a parameter being passed to the interface method to set an attribute.
  • queryParam is a parameter used to modify the structure or information displayed in the output.
Note: The example request URLs in this guide have been encoded with spaces (%20) and colons (%3A) for direct use.
