Navigating maps and workspaces

Workspaces and API tokens

Workspaces are the place where users in the same organization collaborate and share maps. A user may form part of several workspaces but, at the very least, always forms part of one.

API tokens are created per-workspace. If you wish to interact with several workspaces via the Felt API, you must create a different API token for each one.

Working with maps

Creating a new map

Creating a new map is as simple as making a POST request to the maps endpoint.

# Your API token should look like this:

curl -L \
  -X POST \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer ${FELT_API_TOKEN}" \
  "" \
  -d '{"title": "My newly created map"}'

Notice in the response the "id" property. Every map has a unique ID, which is also a part of the map's URL. Let's take note of it for future API calls.

Also part of the response is a "url" property, which is the URL to your newly-created map.

Getting a map's details

Performing a GET request to a map URL will give you useful information about that map, including title, URL, layers, thumbnail URL, creation and visited timestamps.

curl -L \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer ${FELT_API_TOKEN}" \

Deleting a map

To remove a map from your workspace, simply perform a DELETE request to the map's URL:

curl -L \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer ${FELT_API_TOKEN}" \
