API Explorer

To try out the API, you are welcome to use the demonstration key displayed below. The demonstration key is shared by the community and has low quotas (2 calls per second, 5000 calls per day). Therefore, we ask that you register for a production key (it's free!) if you choose to create a production application.


If you already have a key, just enter your production key. You can also view our written documentation.
