The above is a summary of the query parameter usage on the Instagram
/locations/search endpoint. It turns out that there are three main types of usages on this endpoint: usages that specify the search location via the
lng and the
lat query parameters, usage that specify the location via the
foursquare_v2_id parameter, and usages that don’t use these query parameters. The pie chart summarizes this information nicely.
The bullet list expands on the information from the pie chart. Of the 13 requests containing
lat, 3 usages contain an additional parameter
distance. Of the 5 usages containing the query parameter
foursquare_v2_id, there’s one usage that contains the additional parameter
callback. You can see we’ve picked an example from GitHub that is a representative example.
What challenges do you have in using an web API? We would love to hear especially those challenges where there is a technological gap, where you can’t resolve using current practices like searching on Stack Overflow or GitHub! May be we can help bridging the gap one day!
