"Best API for Maps"

What do you like best?

Ease for consuming API's to use maps on your application.

Ability to provide distance between two different Geo locations.

Live updates on Traffic can also be embedded.

Integration with other Azure active directory and other Azure services is another positive point.

Different option to search for a location i.e. based on Geo locations, City name, zip codes etc.

What do you dislike?

It takes time to load the map sometimes.

The feature Geo-fencing is very useful and much needed for our application, but it is quite complex and sometimes not works as expected.

No API connectivity for street view as offered by Google Maps.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The API is very straight forward and easy to use. If basic needs for map are required and you already have Microsoft's (Azure preferably) system in your application, then you can go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to provide a Mapping API for a delivery system for one of our clients. The Azure API helped us a lot in achieving this, and we implemented many features through this like mapping/finding out the shortest route and showing live traffic updates.

"Geographic apps easier to be make"

What do you like best?

Azure location based services is very powerful tool, multiplaform, is very easy to integrated to projects, the best thing about azure lbs is the five API REST which are just amazing to developt apps or web apps, make very simple the management of maps, gps, searchs, routes, traffict, etc. And is based on JavaScript, what is one of the most used programing languages ​​now a days, so there are many of guides about how to use azure location based services.

What do you dislike?

The only two things what i don't like is, there are some countrys where Azure can not be used they are blocked by IP, and sometimes the performance of Azure is low, the latency is too high but can be fixed selecting the best server for deploy your app/web app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are app/ web app developer, you should know how to use azure, and lbs tool is just too good to be avoided when you are developing an app based on geographic location. There are tons of guide, videos about how to use azure lbs, and the user community of azure is really big, so use it if you have any question.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Azure lbs, when i make web apps based on gps, traffic, or any other location service, because it really saves time, you only need to add the API on your app using the authentication key, and configure it also is very easy to monitoring with Azure network watcher which mean i can always know the performance, latency of my app.

"Easy way to visualize data on maps"

The software itself updates very often.

What do you dislike?

what i dislike is the platform itself and that there is not a lot of information on how to use it, so you have to selfstudy the tool-

Maybe if you comercialice a little bit, show your tools and pulse it to the applications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Geodata visualization.

Easy to share with others.
