Static Map Service: Flush Icon Service
For any Static Map request with custom icons, the application caches every custom icon for 60 minutes. The Flush Icon service forces the release of the custom icon from the application's cache in case you want to refresh the icon within this time interval.
|uri||The http uri of the icon to be flushed
This parameter is required.
|key||A unique key to authorize use of the Static Map Service. If a key is needed, please visit the Mapquest Developer Network.|
Flush Icon Sample
In order to demonstrate the Flush Icon service, let us say that we generated a static map with a sample custom icon.
Now, below 'flushicon' request will forcefully delete the icon from cache before the expiration of icon's time to live. Subsequent request for the icon will pull the latest image.
