Selected Link Analysis

Service version: 1
Last edit: 2022.08.22


The Selected Link API calculates the distribution of incoming and outgoing trips through a defined region called "link".

Common use cases

Thanks to the Selected Link API, you can tap into different insights and analysis, such as:

  • How much traffic leaves a highway and drives through downtown to avoid congestion.
  • Determine corridors for new or expanded roads.
  • Alternative routes to manage construction.
  • Planning detours.
  • Intersection dependencies among multiple segments.
  • And much more!

Using this API

This API is asynchronous. There are some important notes about using this API:

  • The latitude and longitude coordinates are in EPSG4326 / WGS84 format for both input and output. Other coordinate systems are not supported.
  • The longest supported selected link is 2 km (1.24 miles). Requests with a longer link will be rejected.
  • As the service is asynchronous it can take a while before results are available, depending on how busy the service is.
  • Do not repost your request multiple times if you do not get feedback within seconds. We will ensure to deliver the results.
