Display sigfox global coverage on your website

An API is available for SO and customers, in order to allow them displaying sigfox global coverage on a public website or GIS applications.

 

Sigfox global coverage:

Only one endpoint allows retrieving the .kmz file for an area.

https://support.sigfox.com/apidocs#operation/kmzFilePublicCoverage

Monarch Global coverage:

First step is to generate the coverage for a product class and attenuation to consider

https://support.sigfox.com/apidocs#operation/kmzCreateMonarch

Then, the job status can be monitored to check if it is done or not :

https://support.sigfox.com/apidocs#operation/kmzStatusMonarc h

A last endpoint allows retrieving the .kmz file (binary file)

Due to an issue, this endpoint is not available yet, you can follow its status on the know issue tab of the backend: https://backend.sigfox.com/welcome/known-issues

Public Operator coverage (only available for some operators):

This API returns a positive answer (200) only if operator is using the lastest version of Sigfox propagation model  

First step is to generate the coverage for a product class and attenuation to consider

Then, the job status can be monitored to check if it is done or not :

How to retrieve global coverage

This operation is done in two steps:

  • Get a valid token to retrieve the coverage layer
  • Retrieve the tiles that will compose the coverage layer

 

First use the GET tiles API, to retrieve a token giving access to the tiles.

This token is valid during 72 hours, it is then recommended to refresh it no more than once per day:

GET https://api.sigfox.com/v2/tiles/public-coverage

Then use the tmsTemplateUrl to display the global coverage

 

How to display coverage

 

On GIS tools (QGIS as an example)

Open a QGIS project.

Select XYZ Tiles in Explorer

Click on New Connection

Give a name and use the tmsTemplateUrl as an URL:

 

Select the layer and display it (zoom in if nothing appears)

 

You can then add a layer below to display a worldwide map (here ESRI standard is used, available through Internet/QuickMapServices

 

On a website

A bitbucket repository is available with recommendations and example of integrations:
