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:

Sigfox provides a way to retrieve a layer that correspond to sigfox maximum coverage worlwide.

This layer is only composed of two values: 1 (covered), 0 (not covered).

Global coverage display example can be found on https://www.sigfox.com/en/coverage.

 

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

Select XYZ Tiles in Explorer

Click on New Connection
