Exploring Mapbox APIs - for beginners

Eric Alessandrini

About this episode

This is a session for beginners. Each Mapbox API provides a specific function and returns different data. We'll compare APIs side-by-side, do some pattern recognition, and learn how to make a well constructed API request. This session will cover requests, responses, and errors for APIs across maps, navigation, and search services.

You’ll learn how to...

  • Understand what APIs are, and why developers use them
  • Formulate and send an API request to a server
  • Understand code examples using APIs
  • Look “under the hood” of a more complex Mapbox API

Tools we’ll use:

  • Your free Mapbox account: account.mapbox.com
  • Web browser (such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox)
  • Mapbox documentation: docs.mapbox.com
  • Code editor (such as Atom, SublimeText, Codepen)

Code-along resources
