  1. Map fails to load in Chrome (72) Win10 - "Failed to initialize WebGL"

    We've had four reports of this issue.

    They are each using the latest version of Chrome (72). They see the spinning box at https://get.webgl.org/ and can see map the map on at mapbox's diagnostic page: http://mapbox.github.io/mapbox-gl-supported/diagnostics.html.

    See attached one of the user's results on diagnostics page and chrome://gpu page

    Is anyone else seeing this?

    We have a few reports of this. Based on investigations we have often found that the devices encountering this issue are often either locked down machines with a lot of restrictions, or using older hardware.

    - The first thing they can try is to update their video drivers.
    - Some other things to try is to change the following settings:

    • Set chrome://settings “Use hardware acceleration when available” to enabled.
    • Set chrome://flags “Override software rendering list” to enabled.
    • Set chrome://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist to enabled.

    If the computer being used is old it is worth noting that Chrome does disable WebGL on some older devices.

    Note there is a feature in the map control to check to see if the browser is supported with the following code: “atlas.isSupported()” Documentation this can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/javascript/api/azure-maps-control/atlas?view=azure-iot-typescript-latest#issupported-boolean- This might help detect users who are unable to access the maps and allow you to…

  2. Improve Geocoding Results for addresses with 5+4 digits ZCTA

    Geocoder is giving results in incorrect score order for some addresses with 5+4 digits ZCTA...

    Go to https://azuremapscodesamples.azurewebsites.net/REST%20Services/Search%20Autosuggest%20and%20JQuery%20UI.html

    Search for "1833 S CHURCH ST, BURLINGTON, NC, 27215-5553", first result is Street, and the second one is the correct one. Searching for "1833 S CHURCH ST, BURLINGTON, NC, 27215" gives the correct one.

    Just a sample of other examples where it happens:
    - "5198 VALLEYDALE RD, BIRMINGHAM, AL, 35242-3756" vs "5198 VALLEYDALE RD, BIRMINGHAM, AL, 35242"
    - "7510 THOMAS DR, PANAMA CITY, FL, 32408-8529" vs "7510 THOMAS DR, PANAMA CITY, FL, 32408"
    - "4915 HIGHWAY 433 W, BENTONIA, MS, 39040-8417" vs…

  4. Danish municipalities and regions are outdated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.

  5. Spatial - Post Point In Polygon property 'type' error

    The point in polygon service started throwing the following Bad Request error:

    "The property 'type' MUST be defined with a valid value of either point, linestring, polygon, multipoint, multilinestring, multipolygon, geometrycollection, feature, featurecollection.; The value '' is not valid for the property 'type'. The valid GeoJSON types include point, linestring, polygon, multipoint, multilinestring, multipolygon, geometrycollection, feature, featurecollection."

    I am sending the type property, it seems there is a bug. I used the example from the docs and it throws the same error: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/maps/spatial/postpointinpolygon#examples

    Thanks for highlighting this issue. It appears to be a documentation issue. We have passed this on to the proper team correct the docs. To resolve the issue, remove the initial:

    { “FeatureCollection”: {

    and a “}” at the end of the body.

  6. Time Zone Windows to IANA lookup returns duplicate entries

    https://atlas.microsoft.com/timezone/windowsToIana/json?subscription-key={subscription-key}&api-version=1.0&query=Pacific Standard Time should return IANA ids matching this windows id. The list of results contains multiple instances of America/Los_Angeles. This feels like a bug. I've not fully tested other ids but I would only expect unique entries in the returned list.
