Static Map API
What it does
Location, Location, Location
Highlight your retail location at a glance.
Add static maps to your page without writing or embedding code.
Street, aerial, light, dark or hybrid maps — you choose! Add banners to your map to include an additional layer of context.
Plays well with others
Combine with our Icons API and watch your map come to life! Place retina markers, circles, vias and flags to your map and customize the markers to fit your brand or mood.
Embed a print-friendly map image that can include custom icons, routes, and more by specifying through a query-string parameter.
Multiple Map Types
The Static Map API supports street, aerial, hybrid, light and dark maps, just like MapQuest.com and our Leaflet Plugins.
Combine Static Maps with Directions API to automatically retrieve and highlight routes with a simple pass of a sessionID.
Custom POI Icons
Choose the text, color and size of your icons or specify an external url.
Declutter Overlapping POIs
Choose to automatically or manually declutter overlapping POIs for a neat, clean look.
Create custom polylines, polygons and circles with specific colors and fills to highlight an area or route.
Get a static map showing your location with a single-line address -- no latitude or longitude required.
Our higher resolution maps can be used on retina display and print media. Get sharp and crisp text, markers and routes.
Sometimes driving directions just won’t cut it. Route between two locations using a geodesic route.
