In order to use the GeoMonkey API, you will need to complete the following steps:

Register for a user account

Navigate your web browser to the MapWith.Us website and sign up for a user account. To do this, you will need to choose a unique username and password, provide a registration email address, and enter some captcha text to prove that you are human. Note that if you already have an account and know your API key and secret, you can skip these first few steps.

Create an application

Once your MapWith.Us account has been created, you will need to navigate to your user profile. Once at your profile, use the links on the right of the page to navigate to Settings -> Applications. Once there, select the new" link from the applications section on the page (see screenshot below).

On the following page, fill in the relevant fields for your application. Most likely, it will look something like this:

At this point, you can go ahead and save your application.

Copy your api key and secret

Now, you should see your application listed in your profile applications listing. If you see it, click on the name of your application to see your the details of your API key and secret, you will need these to access the API, so writing them down would probably be a good idea.
