  1. 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…

  2. Shape class: expose a getCircleCoordinates method

    With the latest release of azure-map-control, v 2.0.10, the `Shape` class now correctly shows a `circlePolygon` property that was missing, but it is marked as `private` so TypeScript will throw an error that it is only accessible within the class.

    It would be great if we could have a `getCircleCoordinates` method that returns the `circlePolygon.geometry.coordinates` when `shape.isCircle()` is true.

    Something like:

    /**
    * Gets the coordinates of the contained shape if it is a Circle.
    */
    getCircleCoordinates(): atlas.data.Position[][] | null;

    There are two options for doing this already. The first option is to use the toJson function. This will generate a GeoJSON polygon for the circle. The coordinates will then be easy to access using geometry.coordinates. A second option is to use the atlas.math.getRegularPolygonPath function to generate the points of the circle, this is what the shape class uses under the hood.
