Belmap API

API: smart interface

An API (Application Programming Interface) is a bit of a mouthful for such a simple solution, which is the interface between two applications over a network. The Belmap API creates an interface between your own application and Belmap. That way, you can easily request address and building information and integrate it into your own applications. What it comes down to in practice is a line of programme code whereby your internal application sends a request to retrieve the requested information from Belmap. For example, this could be an address, a coordinate or a building characteristic.

Hassle-free address management

Using the Belmap API takes away all the hassle of managing address and building information. You simply request the information whenever you need it, in the form you need it in. That way, you always have access to the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Safe and flexible

Communication with the Belmap API travels over a secure connection. In addition, GIM takes care of the complete management of the servers, and adjusts the capacity of the service according to peak or off-peak periods.

A wide range of features

With the Belmap API, you can choose from the following features:

  • Display address suggestions.
  • Address standardisation.
  • Request detailed information about all Belmap elements (addresses, streets and buildings).
  • Geocoding.
  • Reverse geocoding.
  • Display different positions for each address (building, mailbox, street axis).
