Azure Maps received several updates in April. Here is a quick roundup of recently added features.
Now Generally Available:
- Azure Maps Batch services
Azure Maps Batch capabilities available through Search and Route allow customers to send batches of queries using just a single API request.
- Azure Maps Matrix Routing service
This feature allows the calculation of a matrix of route summaries for a collection of routes defined by origin and destination locations.
- Avoid border crossings in routing
The new parameter value avoid=borderCrossings has been added to support routing situations where vehicles are required to stay within one country.
- Display building models
The default settings show all buildings as just their footprints but using the new setting, showBuildingModels, buildings will be rendered with their 2.5D models.
- Get Map tile v2 API
This version will allow users to request map tiles in vector or raster format. This can then be integrated into a map control or SDK.
