    I remember your original feedback item and do recall the scenario being an edge case that rarely comes up. I believe you were generating just over the free limit of transactions in S0, but at a QPS rate that required S1. However your estimates didn't account for caching of tiles which happens automatically and drastically reduces QPS and transactions.

    Its also worth noting that the S0 pricing is significantly cheaper than other platforms and is meant more so for development and smaller apps. S1 is designed for enterprise scenarios that require higher QPS levels (Supporting higher QPS has a higher infrastructure cost). Even the S1 pricing often results in lower costs compared to other platforms. Satellite imagery is not cheap and the way Azure Maps pricing works is that customers pay for what they actually use and the cost associated with providing such feature. Note that you can use both S0 and S1 keys in your apps. I've seen many who will use S0 for things like geocoding and routing, and then S1 for their satellite map tile needs.

    In terms of imagery quality and pricing, there's a lot going behind the scenes that isn't public yet that will help make more sense as to why things are as they are. Stay tuned for updates later this year. Its also worth noting that majority of user s who need S1 generate very high usage 100M+ transactions on average and are usually already large Microsoft customers and get significant volume license discounts.

    In terms of Google Maps features, Azure Maps has pretty good coverage of these and in many cases goes much further (i.e. advance routing for trucks, electric vehicles and lots of other things). The satellite imagery pricing is one of the main sticking points for some as you point out and there are things in the works to address this. The Azure Maps platform is growing fast and there is a lot more coming.

    Thanks for confirming. We are investigating options and will update this thread when we have more details.

    The search API does return an Iso2 as well. Look at the countrySubdivision property in the result. We will also look at adding ISO3 to the Geolocation API.

    This doesn't seem to have anything to do with Azure Maps. Perhaps this should be moved to another category.

    Satellite/Aerial imagery is currently available through the Azure Maps web control. We are working on also exposing this through our REST render and tile services.

    Map styling is something we would like to expose but is a very large work item so it will take time before we are able to expose this across our platform.

    We are looking into this. We will likely release an open source control which wraps our web control which is very powerful. We have done some tests and this works well.

    Azure Maps exposes Aerial imagery (imagery captured by planes) when the map is in satellite mode and is zoomed in. When in the same map mode, when zoomed out a lot, it uses imagery captured by satellites. Currently this is only available in the Azure Maps web map control, but work it being done to expose this through the REST Render services as well.

    Are you looking for an Azure maps connector for Microsoft flow? Or something else. Can you provide more details around your scenario and how you would like this to work.

    Is this specific to Azure Maps?

    Note that Azure Maps currently does not support India as documented here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-maps/about-azure-maps#unsupported-regions The team is working to add support for geopolitically sensitive items first, such as disputed borders, before enabling support.
