Nearmap's Coverage API is designed to be accessed by an application in an automated fashion via URL requests. We recommend that you use a mapping framework designed to consume tiled maps, such as OpenLayersLeafletGoogle Maps JavaScript API, etc.

Rate Limit

Nearmap's Coverage API has a rate limit, meaning that there is a restriction on the number of requests that can be made against an endpoint.
