  1. Topographic, Satellite, and rich map styling

    I'm excited to see a holistic solution for mapping come out of Azure. Being able to get different types of map tiles out of the renderer (such as Topographic and Satellite) as well as request the renderer style the map (similar to Google maps) would be a total home run for me and allow me to move my mapping workloads over.

      • Protect Map account by site URI checking.

        Currently Azure Map account protected by the key, generated on Azure Portal. This is not enough for SPA JS sites. Let say you have a public server-less map App that allows to use anonymously. Map key could easily discovered and stolen. Hence your map account could be used by others for your expense.
        Expected: add ability to specify one or more site URI where legal traffic could come from. Azure should check incoming requests against this list and reject unknown sites. This should support "localhost:port" for test purposes as well as real domain names for production.

        • Service not working from India location

          I was trying to use the azure map service on a VM in (South) India and I am seeing the failures on atlas.min.css?api-version=1.0 and atlas.min.js?api-version=1.0. This appears to be an issue specific to that region as the same code working fine on VM hosted in the US.

          More info about this issue you can get from the below link:

          https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/9105

          When can this service be available for India location?

          • React component

            Please provide Azure Maps as React components. This would be useful for projects that already use Office UI Fabric React but also for many other developers that use React in their projects.

            • Client Side Map Library available via npm

              The atlas js file is large (over 800 KB). We use maps on our site in a few specific locations. Many times a user does not even go to a page that has a map on it. Using npm and lazy loading (we run an angular site) we can serve the needed components only when required. Right now we have to load the map files in our main layout page. If we can package the js with our site we could provide a much better user experience. Also providing typing's would provide a much better developer experience. We don't need…

              • Ability to get POI information using it's ID and the desired Language

                When building multilingual apps, we need to retrieve the POI name in a specific language using its id.

                For example, in a social app. I check into a resturant. I found the POI using fuzzy search and language was specified to be EN.

                A friend, who is checking my location, is using my app with a Arabic interface. I will need to call Azure Maps again to get the name in Arabic. I have the ID of the place form the first check in. it would be easier to use that ID to get the value.

                The only current solution…

                • Add state and ZIP to IP geolocation results

                  The new IP Geolocation API is great. Previously we have tested other products.
                  I would like the API to return ZIP codes and states as well. Some other competing products do that - I am aware of the inaccuracy, but in this case inaccuracy is better than nothing.

                  • Render with point

                    Could you please implement the possibility, when doing a rendered map as png, to have a Point at the adress in Center?

                    With that, we could implement the map as a png and onclick the dynamic map is loaded…

                    Thanks, Martin

                    • Direct Data Import from CosmosDB

                      I think it would be great if you could connect the maps directly to the CosmosDB. So in the call of the map the DB and Collection is deposited, as well as the Query, which then supplies lengths and latitudes, or polygons etc. and this will then be displayed directly on the map.

                      • Add consistent way to get city name from structured address data

                        When using the freeform search endpoint, address results will have structured fields along with the 'freeformAddress'.

                        Most parts of the mailing address can be read from existing fields (streetNumber, streetName, countrySubdivision, postalCode) however the city does not seem to be represented consistently.

                        In some cases the city from the freeform address is the municipalitySubdivision, in others its the countryTertiarySubdivision. As a result, to extract structured address data to use for mailing addresses we have had to resort to parsing the freeformAddress to get the city name from there as it seems to always match the intended mailing address.

                        I would…

                        • Show Pins on top of overlay

                          Pins added to the map do not appear if they appear under an image overlay.

                          It doesn't matter which order the Pin and Overlay are added to the map, the hidden pin is never displayed.

                            • Danish municipalities and regions are outdated

                              When searching for Danish addresses the results for both municipalities and regions seem to follow the pre 2007 standard as described in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:DK E.g. the municipality of Nordborg was merged with Sønderborg and the region of Sønderjylland was merged with others to form Southern Jutland.

                                      • Integrate Microsoft Flow

                                        I want to run our Microsoft Flow at selected location point.

                                        Currently, Microsoft Flow's Mobile Button can run the flow with location information.
                                        I want to do same from Azure Maps by select a location point.
