What does a request mean?

Home > Frequently Asked Questions > What does a request mean?

A request stands for a tile of 512*512 px, which is a recommended option for integration in web application due to best performance/size ratio.
200.000 requests per month limit therefore means that you can retrieve 200.000 tiles of 512*512px per month from our service. If you ask for smaller tiles, e.g. 256*256px, the volume of requests is proportionally larger. Similarly, if you ask for large tiles (e.g. 2000*2000 px), it is smaller.
