Geometry API

Geometry API allows applying geometric operations (for example, union or intersection) to polygons and multi-polygons built with Geoapify APIs. The API works via HTTP Get request.

Request parameters

Name Description
apiKey Required parameter for API key
operation The applied operation. Possible values: "union", "intersection".
id Geometry id returned previously by one of the Geoapify APIs. The minimum required amount of ids is two.

NOTE! A call to geometry API is charged as a call to Places or Geocoding API. However, one call is calculated for each geometry pair. So if you provide 4 ids in the request, it will be calculated as 3 credits.

The response object contains a GeoJSON FeatureCollection object.

Name Description
type "FeatureCollection"
features Contains Feature objects of type "Multipolygon".
