Azure Base Map Badly Labelled in Boston

Getting some feedback on the base map labelling of Boston on the Azure Base Maps on Dock Square Boston.

Firstly, the location is way off. It should be up closer to the location of BullFinch Triangle.

Secondly, the location is given far too much prominence on the base map for a small location within Boston.

While the prominence probably isn't such a big issue, because it's badly located, it becsomes more of an issue and to Boston Locals just makes the map look wrong.

I tried to update the Dock Square location here (https://feedback.azuremaps.com/) but it is not stored as a location there so I presumed here the best location to post feedback.

Hi Paul,

If you give this feedback at Feedback.AzureMaps.com it goes directly to the map provider for review and fix. In this forum we can answer coding questions but data and rendering issues should go through feedback.azuremaps.com directly.

Sincerely, IoTGirl

Thanks IoTGirl

I did look there first, but as that location is not searchable as an address, I thought it may be less a data issue, and more an Azure rendering issue, but you must be right, it can only be rendered there based on the data so I have logged there as you have suggested.

Thank you.

Paul

This issue is within the Azure Maps style file and not a TomTom issue. IoTGirl, I'll send you the details internally.

Thanks @rbrundritt. I have escalated this to the control team as well based on your review.
