The v1 DMAPI will be deprecated on 1/1/2016. If you have questions or need assistance migrating to the latest version please contact us.

The SpatialKey Data Import API allows developers to programmatically create, update, delete and query meta data about SpatialKey datasets.  Note: If you don’t have any programming knowledge, you can leverage our API to create and update data in SpatialKey with the Data Management API Command Line Tool (version 1.0).

Since the API is based on REST principles, it’s very easy to write and test. You can use pretty much any HTTP client in any programming language to interact with the API. We have examples in multiple languages that you can leverage as a starting point.


All requests to the SpatialKey REST API require you to authenticate with your account username (email) and password. The authentication process will return a session token that is needed for all calls below.


After authenticating and obtaining your session token you can make any of the calls below.
