Is Concept3D’s API complete?

What do I need to interact with the Concept3D API?

For Front End Authenticated Maps, we have additional documentation on how to obtain an authentication token.

Is there an extra cost associated with utilizing the Concept3D API?
Yes, there is a cost to access the Concept3D API, it is not open. Please contact your Account Executive or Client Success Manager for pricing details.
Is it possible to restrict a location request or search query to a particular category?
You can restrict which categories are returned by turning the categories to “non-visible” or “private” in the content management system. Any locations living under a category with either of those settings turned on will not be returned.
What data is returned from the wayfinding results?
The wayfinding will calculate the shortest distance between two points. You can give two points and the route between the two will be calculated. You can use an array of coordinates.
I am trying to pull the wayfinding data from the API, but I am getting a 400 Bad Request Error - what is the issue?
First, check to make sure wayfinding has been added to your map. If you are in the production process, the wayfinding nodes will not be added until after the second round of revisions. If wayfinding is on your map and you are still having issues, reach out to your Client Success Manager for more information.
