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. Danish municipalities and regions are outdated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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Improve documentation for Python

    I am a Python developer who uses Google Maps API for a lot, but have many other services with Azure and would like to make the switch. However, I can find NO documentation for Python at all other than how to install it. Google Maps by comparison has excellent documentation. Can you please provide some documentation?

  9. 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…

  10. 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

  13. Advanced reporting

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

    Thank you

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.
