Bing Maps Geographic Coverage

Bing Maps contains different levels of geographic coverage for every country/region in the world. The following table contains details about coverage for

  • Road Data / Routing (Driving and Walking)
  • Traffic
  • Truck Routing
  • Geocoding

Road Data / Routing (Driving and Walking)

  • Good - The country/region has detailed road data available in most populated centers and most of these have been verified for accuracy. Coverage is updated frequently. Remote areas may lack some road information.

  • Fair - At a minimum, the country/region has major road data available as well as some detailed road data. Most often, these roads have not been verified for accuracy. Coverage is updated over time. Please visit the map to assess if the current version meets the needs of your application.

  • Major Roads Only - At a minimum, the country/region coverage includes major roads. These roads have not been verified for accuracy. Coverage is updated over time. Please visit the map to assess if the current version meets the needs of your application.

Traffic

Bing Maps APIs provide traffic coverage for the countries indicated in the coverage table. Traffic flow can be illustrated by lines of color representing different levels of traffic congestion that display on a Bing map. Traffic flow is can also used by the routing APIs. Traffic incidents are reports of traffic issues, such as the report of an accident. Traffic incidents are provided by APIs such as the Bing Maps Traffic API and Bing Maps V8 Web Control Traffic Module. Traffic incident text is provided in the primary language of the country where the incident occurs.

Truck Routing

The Bing Maps Truck Routing API provides travel routes which take truck attributes such as size, weight and type of cargo. This is important as not all trucks can travel the same routes as other vehicles. Here are some examples:

  • Bridges have heights and weight limits.
  • Tunnels often have restrictions on flammable or hazardous materials.
  • Longer trucks have difficulty making tight turns.
  • Highways often have a separate speed limit for trucks.
  • Certain trucks may want to avoid roads that have steep gradients.

Bing Maps supports truck routing in the countries/regions indicated in the table below.

Note

Not all truck restrictions may be supported or apply to all countries.

Geocoding

  • Rooftop – Most addresses are resolved to the latitude/longitude coordinate at the center of the address parcel (property boundary). Rooftop has the highest level of accuracy support. Its coverage varies by country.

  • Address – Addresses are interpolated to a latitude/longitude coordinate on the street.

  • Street Name – Addresses are resolved to the latitude/longitude coordinate of the street that contains the address. The address number is not processed.

  • Basic - Geocoding support is limited and primarily only accurate to the city level. If an address is valid, Bing Maps attempts to resolve it, but a result is not guaranteed.

Note

The ability to geocode in a country is dependent upon the road data coverage and the geocoding precision of the geocoding service. For example, a country/region may have 'Address' geocoding precision, but if there is 'Fair' road data coverage, you can only geocode addresses on the available streets and roads. Typically, geocoding precision also applies to reverse-geocoding.
