Display the Sigfox Monarch global coverage

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: undefined/apidocs#tag/Tiles/paths/~1tiles~1public-coverage/get

The token is valid for 72 hours, refreshing it daily is not recommended.
