Help to authenticate with an API

Dear all,

I have an API that needs to know if some locations have Mapillary coverage to show the street on an embed in the front-end, I need some help to understand if there’s any way to authenticate my application directly from the API without needing to authorize clicking in a button and being redirected or if there’s another way to discover if some location has Mapillary coverage and how much images that location have.

Thanks a lot.

From the documentation: Mapillary

using ?access_token=XXX query parameters. This is a preferred method for interacting with vector tiles. Using this method is STRONGLY discouraged for sending user access tokens.

To find out if some location has imagery, you can either use the vector tiles (Mapillary) or image search (Mapillary).
