# Request incident by ID

Detailed information about a single incident can be requested by providing the incident's original ID and the type of location referencing to return (locationReferencing).

The originalId can be prefixed with a namespace. If no namespace is specified, the default namespace is here:traffic:incident.

The locationReferencing can be one or several out of tmc, olr, shape. Specify only the location types that you are able to interpret to ensure that you don't get any data that you can't process.

### Note

Specify none if you are not interested in the location of the incident information. The response will not contain any location references.

The returned data will be a single incident item that has a location and an incidentDetails element. Each location has a length in meters and the available location references of the location, that depend on the references requested by the locationReferencing parameter.

The incidentDetails element of the incident item carries details such as start-time and end-time, AlertC code, and description of the incident.
