Tile Template API

Embed map tiles in your own application

The Tiles API can be used to fetch and access map tile data from existing DroneDeploy Maps. It is primarily used to display dronedeploy map tiles in other mapping or CAD applications. You can request 2D orthomosaic, elevation, and plant health tile layers.

First, you will need an API Key

Get Tile Templates

We include the location of the map, and the template links for the orthomosaic, crop health, and elevation tile layers. A token is included with an 18-month expiry, so you can use these links confidently to display tiles in applications based on the Mapbox or Leaflet frameworks.

GET /v2/tiles/<plan_id>

Returns JSON - Location of map and tile template links for each 2D layer.
