How many pois can a static map have?

I am writing a program that will show pois for student locations.  Its a map to show where our student population is concentrated.  I count about 50 pois on the map but there should be more.  Is there a limit to the number of pois I can put in a url submition to the static map api?

 

Thanks,

Andrew

There should not be a limit.
There should not be a limit. But it begs the question: how many pois are you putting on the map? Using a heatmap may be a better display method. There is a Leaflet plugin for heatmaps that can be used with the MapQuest Leaflet plugin for map tiles.

This particular map will have

This particular map will have 232 pois.  There is talk of using the map for ride sharing as well.  That is why I am using pois and not a heatmap.

 

Thanks for the reply.

Can you post a sample url
Can you post a sample url that is not working? I'd like to see what's going on here. Beyond url length limits imposed by browsers, I'm not sure why it wouldn't display those pois.

Browsers have URL length limits

Each browser is different but a limit of 2000 characters is the average.
