Lot Index API, one of the LandsD Map APIs, is a map feature service which enables developers to retrieve private lots, Government Land Allocations (GLAs) and Short-Term Tenancies (STTs) in GML format.

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Satellite Image Map (“the Image Map”) is prepared by the Survey and Mapping Office of the Lands Department of the Government. It contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data  from Copernicus Sentinel-2 data captured in 2022, which covered a large region of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area for reference of the public. Users should make their own assessment of the Image Map and are advised to verify the information therein before use.
[version] specifies the version number of this API, which is currently "v1.0.0". Notes: The version number may be updated in the future. Old version will be removed at any time without notice. Please check this page to get the list of supported version and update your application(s) accordingly.
[LIT] specifies the lot index type (private lot, GLA, STT) in the return.
LOT - private lots
GLA - Government Land Allocations
STT - Short-Term Tenancies
[hk80MinX] specifies the minimum value of HK1980 Easting to filter the output by a spatial extent (use HK1980 Grid coordinates).
[hk80MinY] specifies the minimum value of HK1980 Northing to filter the output by a spatial extent (use HK1980 Grid coordinates).
[hk80MaxX] specifies the maximum value of HK1980 Easting to filter the output by a spatial extent (use HK1980 Grid coordinates).
[hk80MaxY] specifies the maximum value of HK1980 Northing to filter the output by a spatial extent (use HK1980 Grid coordinates).
The data will be returned in GML format based on “HK80” spatial reference system.
Note: The data will only be returned when the map extent as shown on the application is smaller than or equal to the size of 750m x 600m on ground, which is equal to standard size of 1:1000 (HP1C) topographic map tile.
This API uses the standard HTTP status code to indicate the status of the API request.
