If there is a way to use latitude and longitude of a location instead of ‘photo id’ to access an image?

I am new to Mapillary. As shown in the documentation (e.g. https://mapillary.github.io/mapillary-js/) we can access image using javascript code which requires ‘client id’ and ‘photo id’

My question is if there is a way to use latitude and longitude of a location instead of ‘photo id’ to access an image?

Hi @get and welcome to Mapillary!

The answer to your question is no - you can’t use latitude and longitude only to access a specific image. This is simply because there may be more than one photo in the exact same location, so lat and lon wouldn’t give a unique response. The photo ID is unique for each image.

Can you describe what you aim to achieve? Is it about that you are interested in a specific location and would like to render any image that happens to be the closest to these coordinates - or is it something else?

I found this blog post written in april 2017, this might very well answer the question?
