Regions API | 2GIS Documentation

Regions API

The Regions API is used to select a region that limits the searches for organizations, buildings, and places.

In terms of this API we’re going to use a word region for an agglomeration that includes a large city ​​and its nearest settlements, as well as its satellite cities. In general, our regions have nothing to do with the subjects of the Russian Federation and correspond to the internal data storage format in 2GIS.

This API is primarily intended for internal use.

Outside the regions, the search for places and companies is geographically restricted.

This section presents an example of a request

https://catalog.api.2gis.com/2.0/region/search?q=Moscow&key=YOUR_KEY

This request takes the following parameters:

  • q=cafe — the search is performed for the “cafe” query
  • key=YOUR_KEY — your API key

The response to the request is returned in JSON format:

{
    "meta": {
        "api_version": "2.0.448950",
        "code": 200,
        "issue_date": "20200629"
    },
    "result": {
        "items": [
            {
                "id": "32",
                "name": "Moscow",
                "type": "region"
            }
        ],
        "total": 1
    }
}
