This API will retrieve tiles up to the maximum zoom level that has been set on the tiles. To allow digital scaling in your application, set the maximum zoom level of the tile source using a mapping framework designed to consume tiled maps such as Google Maps JavaScript APIOpenLayersLeaflet

The advantage of doing this is that it allows the app to be more bandwidth efficient and to upscale on the client. This is more responsive and will consume less network traffic (and less usage for users).


RequiredNameAPI / queryTypeDescription

zAPIintegerThe zoom level. The highest resolution is typically 21. Uses the Google Maps Tile Coordinates.

xAPIintegerThe X tile coordinate (column). Uses the Google Maps Tile Coordinates.

yAPIintegerThe Y tile coordinate (row). Uses the Google Maps Tile Coordinates.


The format of the tile output. The available values are:

    • jpg - always JPEG
    • png - always PNG
    • img - JPEG by default, PNG when the tile is partial

Note that imagery is stored on Nearmap's servers as JPEG, so switching to PNG does not result in improvement in quality, however it will increase the size of the response.
