Firstly, thanks for a great service! 15,000 free calls is incredible!
I'm looking up traffic incidents in an area of lat/lon that I've defined. I'm also doing a few other things with this area. It's a good 50 miles x 50 miles, but in a sort of shield shape, not a box.
If I query Mapquest with the entire bounds, it returns 0 results: https://www.mapquestapi.com/traffic/v2/incidents?&outFormat=json&boundin...
However, if I define bounding box as a straight line, and not a "box" that I have defined, such as: https://www.mapquestapi.com/traffic/v2/incidents?&outFormat=json&boundin..., it has construction defined. Even though those coordinates are included in my bounding box above, they are never included.
Even in the example: https://developer.mapquest.com/documentation/traffic-api/incidents/get/, boundingBox is defined as two comma seperated lat/lons, and not multi point/polygon.
Is this the case? Or am I doing something incorrectly?
Ah, that makes great sense now!
I was confused as there were only two points, not four, so I thought it was missing the 3 sides of the box, but now you mentioned from upper left to lower right, it makes sense why it's boundingBox.
Appreciate your quick reply!
