A public API endpoint allows displaying Sigfox Monarch global coverage on websites or GIS applications.
This map is retrieved as a layer corresponding to the worldwide Monarch service coverage composed of two values: 1 (covered), and 0 (not covered).
An example of displaying global coverage can be found on https://www.sigfox.com/en/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
Get the token
The dedicated endpoint is documented here: https://support.sigfox.com/apidocs#tag/Tiles/paths/~1tiles~1public-coverage/get
The token is valid for 72 hours, it is recommended to refresh it daily.
