Simple and secure location APIs provide geospatial context to data
Add maps, search, routing and traffic capabilities to your apps with geospatial services APIs that integrate seamlessly with other Azure tools and services.
Build location-aware applications in Azure
Create apps that provide details about a point of interest (POI), including contact information, hours of operation, a location pinpointed on a map, and directions to its address. Search for businesses by name, category or what’s closest to you.
Develop mobility solutions that improve travel time and avoid gridlock. You get multiple alternative routes around traffic jams, insight into the length of the backup and the time it would take to get through it, and faster travel during rush hour.
Give your solutions the ability to navigate the shortest or fastest routes available – to multiple destinations at a time – or provide specialised routes and facts for walkers, cyclists and commercial vehicles. Utilise sophisticated capabilities such as isochrones, matrix routing and batch routing for optimal route calculations.
Make apps that turn latitude and longitude coordinates into street addresses – and switch street addresses to map coordinates. Use this data to ensure customers, goods and drivers get to destinations on time.
See what time it is anywhere in the world. Select a location to find the time zone, its offset to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), and daylight saving time updates.
Geolocation Service Preview
Look up the country of an IP address. Customise content and services based on user location and gain insight on customer geographic distribution.
Deploy large-scale enterprise solutions and mission-critical applications with batch services and advanced geospatial analytics.
Create real-time alerts indicating when mobile assets enter or exit a geographic boundary – useful for delivery notifications, security alerts and asset tracking.
Azure Active Directory authentication Preview
Secure your solutions and manage user access with Azure Active Directory authentication and identity services.
Spatial operations Preview
Enhance your location intelligence with a library of common geospatial mathematical calculations, including closest point, great circle distance and buffers.
Azure Maps Data Service Preview
Store geospatial data for use with Spatial Operations or image composition to reduce latency and increase productivity.
Build world-class location intelligence solutions for IoT and AI
Develop secure, scalable IoT and mobility solutions with dynamic location-based services. Enable everything from vehicle routing and asset tracking services to POI details and real-time traffic data – powered by TomTom.
Create rich, custom data visualisations for your web and mobile apps
Manage and customise your data representations with multiple map layers, such as heatmaps, image layers, HTML markers and others. Select from rich visual imagery styles, including satellite, greyscale and natural earth tiles.
Use Azure Maps with familiar tools and services
Build your location-aware solutions with a seamless development experience. Easily integrate other Azure services for IoT, advanced analytics and other capabilities. Get Azure security and scale with built-in Azure Active Directory authentication and GDPR compliance.
