Speed Limit Data

Do you supply speed limit data in your api or do I need to access that from a third party? If the latter, do you have a suggestion for who?

The Azure Maps reverse geocoding service does have an option to return speed limits: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/maps/search/getsearchaddressreverse Set the returnSpeedLimit parameter to true.

The routing service in Azure Maps provides details on the current effective speed of traffic on the road depending on current or predicted traffic. This isn't the speed limit but instead tells you what the speed of vehicles are, or likely to be. The vector traffic flow tiles also provide the raw traffic flow information which can be used for seeing this info in bulk.

Hi @DerksenGerry-0772 ,

Can you give us your scenario for speed limits? We have multiple map APIs as Ricky mentions. For example https://blogs.bing.com/maps/2020-03/new-enhancements-to-bing-maps-routing-and-logistics-apis

  1. Calling a route without traffic will use posted speed limits

  2. Calling a route with traffic will use predicted / ambient speeds as explained by Ricky

If the scenario that needs the speedlimit is to do with routing, you can change how you call the API to get different predicted routes and values.

Sincerely,
IoTGirl
