Traffic Monitoring APIs


Traffic Monitoring APIs allow clients to receive a stream of anonymous GPS observations generated from the MapQuest mobile applications. Each record syndicated includes the Basic Attribution and Telemetry Attribution fields.

The Traffic Monitoring API is comprised of two parts: the Trace Firehose API, and the Trace History API.

Trace Firehose

The Trace Firehose API provides access to GPS observations using industry standard transports such as standard HTTP streaming, Server Side Events, and Web Sockets. The Trace Firehose API provides low latency, high throughput, near “real-time” access to GPS Observations.

Trace History

The Trace History API allows users to query the service for the saved location observations (also referred to as 'traces') for devices by ID.
