JavaScript API

Any c2cgeoportal application exposes a JavaScript API. This API can be used in third-party applications, such as CMS applications.

The API CSS is in the file geoportal/demo_geoportal/static-ngeo/api/api.css.

You can customize your API by editing the file geoportal/demo_geoportal/static-ngeo/api/index.js:

// The URL to the themes service.
config.themesUrl = '<the theme URL>';

// The projection of the map, for example: 'EPSG:21781'
config.projection = <the projection>;

// The resolutions list, for example: [250, 100, 50, 20, 10, 5, 2, 1, 0.5, 0.25, 0.1, 0.05]
config.resolutions = [<the map resolutions>];

// The extent restriction, must be in the same projection as `config.projection`.
// the format is `[minx, miny, maxx, maxy]`, for example: `[420000, 30000, 660000, 350000]`
// the default is ǹo restriction.
config.extent = [<the map extent>];

// The name of the layer to use as background, the layer must be present in the 'background_layers'
// section of the theme
config.backgroundLayer = '<the background layer name>';

// The list of layers (names) that can be queried on mouse click
config.queryableLayers = [<layer a>, <layer b>, ...];

The API help is in the folder geoportal/<package>_geoportal/static-ngeo/api/apihelp/.

In order for a layer to be accessible via API, proceed as follows:

  • Add the layer.
  • Select the ‘api’ interface.
  • Add the layer to a group which is visible in the API.


A group is visible in the API if it is in a theme whose ‘api’ interface is checked.
