Neighborhood Boundaries

Maponics Neighborhood API

Maponics offers a Neighborhood API through the Maponics Spatial API website, which enables web developers to quickly access and integrate a full range of geographic data and attributes within the global Neighborhood Boundaries dataset

Whether you need a simple database lookup of neighborhood names or want a more meaningful way to organize and present map data within geofences defined by local communities, this dataset offers access to more than 185,000 neighborhoods in 70 countries with fields such as names, alternate names, centroids, polygons, metro, and country.  

Website visitors respond and return to sites that offer information and services presented in ways that reflect the area in which they live and work. Adding some basic web services calls to the Neighborhood API allows you to present neighborhoods in relation to a news story, point of interest or social networking post.

Neighborhood API Methods

The Maponics API server offers a variety of method types to access the neighborhood API, including those that return:

  • ID of a single spatial object
  • List of IDs for multiple spatial objects
  • Attributes of a spatial object
  • geographic coordinates of a spatial object
