Azure Maps

Geospatial APIs to add maps, spatial analytics, and mobility solutions to your apps

Put location intelligence to work for your enterprise

Create location-aware web and mobile applications using simple and secure geospatial services, APIs, and SDKs in Azure. Deliver seamless experiences based on geospatial data with built-in location intelligence from world-class mobility technology partners.

Watch the overview video to learn how enterprises around the world are using Azure Maps—and how you can start using it today.

Get world-class location and mobility technology

Create your solutions using real-time location intelligence powered by world-class mobility technology partners TomTom and Moovit. Easily integrate advanced location and mobility capabilities into your applications with geospatial services that are native to Azure Maps.

Build location intelligence solutions for IoT and AI

Develop secure, scalable IoT and AI solutions with dynamic, location-based services. Enable everything from vehicle routing, traffic simulation, and asset tracking services to POI details and satellite imagery analysis.

Create rich data visualizations for your web and mobile apps

Manage and customize your data representations with multiple map layers, such as heatmaps, image layers, and HTML markers. Select from rich visual imagery styles, including satellite, grayscale, and shaded relief tiles.

Use Azure Maps with open source and other familiar map controls

Build your location-aware solutions with a seamless development experience. Easily integrate open source and other map controls, including OpenLayers, Leaflet, and Cesium, as well as Open Geospatial Consortium standards, such as GeoJSON and KML.

Azure Maps Services

Search

Create apps that provide details about nearby points of interest (POI), render locations on a map, and geocode (or reverse geocode) addresses to get corresponding latitude/longitude coordinates.

Traffic

Develop mobility solutions that improve travel time and avoid gridlock. Offer multiple alternate routes around traffic jams, insight into the length of the backup and the time it takes to get through it, and a faster travel experience during rush hour.

Maps

Integrate clear, easy-to-read maps into your solutions with the JavaScript Map Control or the Render API. The maps update dynamically, so your customers get constantly refreshed information. Build web and mobile apps with web and Android SDKs.

Routing

Present the shortest or fastest routes available—to multiple destinations at a time—or provide specialized routes and facts for walkers, bicyclists, and commercial vehicles. Optimize route calculations with isochrones, matrix routing, and batch routing.

Time zones

Make it easy for users to 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 Pratinjau

Look up the country of an IP address. Customize content and services based on user location and gain insight on customer geographic distribution.

Spatial operations

Enhance your location intelligence with a library of common geospatial mathematical calculations, including geofencing, closest point, great circle distance, and buffers.

Data Service Pratinjau

Upload and store geospatial data for use with spatial operations or image composition to reduce latency, increase productivity, and enable new scenarios within your applications.

Mobility Pratinjau

Provide real-time location intelligence on nearby public transit services, including stops, route information, and travel time estimations.

Frequently asked questions about Azure Maps

  • Azure Maps is built in collaboration with world-class mobility and location technology partners, including TomTom and Moovit, who provide the underlying location intelligence for maps, POI, traffic, transit, and road data used.
  • No, you don’t need a license. Azure Maps has consumption-based pricing and requires no license agreement or upfront cost. Pay only for what you consume and easily integrate your Azure Maps consumption into an existing Azure subscription or Enterprise Agreement.
  • Azure Maps offers two pricing tiers. The S0 pricing tier may be right for you if the core geospatial APIs meet your service requirements. If you want more advanced capabilities for your application, consider the S1 pricing tier. Check out the pricing page for more information.
  • Geocoding coverage varies by region and depends upon the road data coverage and the precision of the geocoding service. See coverage documentation.
  • Azure Maps supports many languages, but language support does vary by feature. See the full list of language support.
