  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  5. Include State filter in the Search API

    By setting the countrySet parameter, we can get the results for only that country but it would be good if we could have extra parameters to filter the results based on States and Cities. Agree that we have few other parameters to filter out the results but having State and City parameters would be user friendly.

    E.g. 1: If countrySet is set to US and stateSet is set to TN, only addresses from Tennessee State are returned
    E.g. 2: If countrySet is set to US, stateSet is set to TN and citySet is set to Nashville, only addresses from Nashville…

  7. 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…

  8. Standard Parsing required for Street Address

    As of now, only Street Address Elements, StreetName and StreetNumber are returned from Search API. In most of the places, only parsed elements are used/saved internally. For e.g. if 123 N MAIN ST, NASHVILLE is entered, 123 is saved as Street Number, N as Direction Prefix, MAIN as Street Name, ST as Street Type etc. May be Search API can also be extended to return the additional street Elements like Street Pre-Type, Street Directional Prefix, Street Directional Suffix, Street Type, etc. But, it would be good if there is a standard Parser function exposed similar to existing Search API methods…

  9. Support for historical weather

    I was excited when I first heard that the Azure Maps service was going to add weather data. Unfortunately, it looks like the service only supports current conditions and weather forecasts. It would be great to also be able to get historical conditions - daily averages would be good, hourly would be great.

  10. Adding a clearer style for map tiles over satellite tiles

    Azure Map's label or hybrid layer are not thought to look legible over satellite tiles. Since the text color is black with white borders (and white roads with black borders) it looks painfully awful to use.

    Attached is a simple Azure vs Mapbox comparison.

  12. 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.

  15. IP Geolocation: Support for local IPs, TOR exit nodes, proxies, data center IPs

    When I send a request with my local IP (127.0.0.1 or 192.168.1.123) I get a response without a country code. It would be great if you could extend the model and include additional properties about that IP. In addition it would be great to know if the IP is used as a TOR exit node, or a known proxy server or a datacenter IP (AWS, Azure etc).

  17. Pricing is beyond bad

    I've said this before, and my idea was rejected because it was considered "an edge case". It seems though that the reviewers didn't bother to read my entire post.

    In my old post (https://feedback.azure.com/forums/909172-azure-maps/suggestions/36265189-pricing-is-really-bad), I gave an example of how the service becomes ridiculously more expensive just by changing one variable (QPS). However, the reviewer focused only on that example and didn't bother about the rest.

    Now, here I am again facing the same problem, now with satellite images.
    We need to use satellite images in one of our maps. However, just because of that, our cost increases…

  18. Extend "Search - Get Search Fuzzy" Method

    Would be great to have an opportunity to include or exclude POI categories.
    For example: i only want railway station and airports; or i don't want any parking garage in my result

    The countrySet Flag is great, but it would be good to go more deep:
    - I want the countrySet DE and AT but from AT i only want the countrySubdivision Salzburg

  19. Ability to query addresses in multiple languages simultaneously

    Streets and cities may have names in multiple languages, and we don't always know in advance which language the user is going to query the parts of the address in. If we return with default language, the user sees the result in one language, but the street address may have been in different language than the city name in the query. In order to check that street and city was indeed the ones given by the user, it would be helpful to get results in multiple languages instead of one.

    In practice, this would mean 1) allowing a list of…

  20. IP Geolocation: Add countryCodeISO3 Property to model

    We have been using the Azure Maps API for a while now and since the address search api returns an address with a 'countryCodeISO3' property, we started using the 3 letter code. The Geolocation API now returns the 2 letter code, Ideally the model would include the 3 letter code as well or maybe an additional parameter could control the behaviour, so that we don't have to "translate" it on our side from 2 to 3 letters.
