Get item info by coordinates

To get information about any item on a graphic layer by its coordinates, use the request:

http://{host}/avl_hittest?rname=<text>&lat=<double>&lon=<double>&scale=<uint>&
radius=<double>&sdk=<text>

:!: Attention
Before executing that command please create appropriate layer using next commands: Create POI layer, Create geofence layer, Create track layer.

Parameters

Name Description
rname renderer name (see Create image renderer)
lat latitude
lon longitude
scale zoom: 0-17
radius search radius
sdk request is sent through SDK: 0 - no, 1 - yes (for compatibility with old versions), common usage - 1.
Use value of this parameter without quotes, otherwise you'll get ERROR in result.
