  1. 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"

  2. Danish municipalities and regions are outdated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.

  3. az maps account create doesn't seem to work

    the following code works, but always results in a 403 forbidden error when you call the API. If I create the resource in the portal then the calls work. The calls below should work when calling the API
    AzMapsName="azmaps"
    ResGroup="rgAzMaps"
    location="eastus2"

    az group create --name $ResGroup --location $location

    az provider register --namespace "Microsoft.Maps"

    az maps account create \
    --name $AzMapsName \
    --resource-group $ResGroup \
    --accept-tos \
    --sku "S0"

    az maps account keys list --name $AzMapsName --resource-group $ResGroup
    echo "Make sure you copy the primarykey from the output to the variable in the correct cell above and run the cell"

  4. ' is not supported in pin's name

    When using the rest render api (static image) with ' in pin's name, it could not display correctly.

    Tried escaping, then encoding the ' to %2527 but this does not work. Using the escaped value for ' which is %27 causes an error

  5. 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.
