Mappers API


The Mappers API is a set of HTTP requests used for submitting data to the Mappers project. Data submitted is viewable on and updated in real time.


There is currently no authentication required.

Post-Console Migration Note

Certain parameters are implicitly included from the legacy Console payload. The Mappers platform requires updates to accommodate payloads from other LNSs like ChirpStack.

Submit geo tagged device uplink.
