  1. 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.

  2. 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.
