Azure Maps

Azure Maps is a portfolio of geospatial services that include service APIs for Maps, Search, Routing, Traffic and Time Zones. The portfolio of Azure OneAPI compliant services allows you to use familiar developer tools to quickly develop and scale solutions that integrate location information into your Azure solutions. Azure Maps provides developers from all industries powerful geospatial capabilities packed with fresh mapping data imperative to providing geographic context to web and mobile applications.

More details about the services are available in the Azure Maps documentation. If you have a technical issue, please open a post on the developer forums through Stack Overflow or MSDN.

  1. Integrate Microsoft Flow

    I want to run our Microsoft Flow at selected location point.

    Currently, Microsoft Flow's Mobile Button can run the flow with location information.
    I want to do same from Azure Maps by select a location point.

  3. Cities near another city

    Lets consider that use case: I search on my application which allows to get doctors available in a specific city. A scenario would be to have 0 result on city I requested but the alternative would be to provide doctors available on neighbors city (on a specific radius ) of the one we queryed.

    The idea is to add an GET method allowing to get neighbors city of another city by passing the city name (or its zipcode) and and radius

    Not 100% clear on what is being asked here. Most cities do not have borders that align with other cities. Many have open area between city boundaries (i.e. rural area). So finding a neighboring city that shares a border isn’t really an option. A couple of options, we could find other nearby cities within a search radius, it that is suitable. Or in the case of looking for doctors, you could simply do a radius search for doctors. That said, a better option when it comes to searching for points of interest is to do a time based search. For example, find all doctors within a 15 minute drive. Most people are more concerned about how long something takes than how far something is. There is a tutorial showing this concept here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-maps/tutorial-ev-routing

  4. 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"

  5. Is it possible to look a historical imagery to analyze

    Is it possible to look at historical imagery to analyze chances in a area over time, if so how many years are we able to go back?

  6. ' 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

  7. Give Access without User Access Administrator permission required

    I'm currently automating the provisioning of Azure Maps + Client App. The client authenticates using a Managed Identity for Azure.

    However, in order to give the Managed Identity access to Azure Maps, I need to have permission to this action:
    Microsoft.Authorization/roleAssignments/write

    This action is not normally given to Service Principals, and it's not great from a security perspective. The required role is User Access Administrator

    So I would like to be able to give Maps reader permission to a managed identity, WITHOUT needing the User Access Administrator role on my Service Principal.

    A good example is KeyVault. With KeyVault, access…

  8. Angular map component

    There should be an Angular component which would make easier to integrate Azure maps with Angular (the most popular JS framework) applications.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Toll road icons looks bad

    Toll roads icons on road are too frequents and are too prominent.

    Is there any option to hide them? or are you planing to edit them in a next release?

  14. Advanced reporting

    Google Maps and Mapbox provide advanced usage reporting. Do you have plans to expand reporting capabilities for Azure Maps.

    Azure Maps takes privacy very seriously as this is a key requirement for many Azure Maps customers. We will investigate some advanced reporting features but for those who want deep insights into how the user is interacting with the map/page, we will look into a partner solution which users can use with our platform.

  15. Improve Street Name Labeling

    Labeling is too big and too aggressive, I would say.

    Take a look at Azure (https://jsfiddle.net/rxck4q3j/2/) and Google for comparison (https://www.google.ie/maps/@53.4615805,-6.2244948,17z)

    In Azure, In the main streets "Rathbeale Rd" and "Watery Ln" font is too big so it doesn't fit inside the road. The labels also repeat too often, very close together.

    They also should not be dark black, I'd grey'd them out a little.

  16. Need maps for Asia region

    Currently the Maps does not support Asian regions. It would be good to have maps the Asia region. This would help us stick completely with Azure instead of using other map services like google maps.

  17. Return all addresses with a specified postal code

    In the UK postal codes typically represent a single building in major cities or 100 or less addresses in rural areas. It would be great if there was a feature where instead of geocoding the postal code and getting a result for the postal code, if instead we could get all addresses associated with that postal code. For example: NW1 7AW in the UK has 86 addresses, all on Hampstead road.

    This would be great for scenarios where the geocoding service is being used to help users fill in an address form.

  18. 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.
