Getting Started

Step 1: Get Credentials To call any of our APIs, you need credentials which can be requested on this page.

Step 2: API Authentication All INRIX APIs require an authentication token when requesting data. The Authentication page describes this process in detail.

Step 3: Get Data Use the authentication token and call one of the INRIX APIs. In general, these APIs allow you to specify the geographic region you are interested in and the type of data you want. The API response can be either JSON or XML and where appropriate an image file. If you have specific questions, look in the Reference section in the left nav for general Best Practices, a Glossary of terms used in documentation and other details needed when calling some of our APIs.
