Bing Maps Geographic Coverage

Bing

Bing Maps contains different levels of geographic coverage for every country/region in the world. The following tables contain details about base map data, routing (driving and walking), and geocoding support for each country/region. Also see Bing Maps Transit Coverage and Bing Maps Traffic Coverage.

A set of values are given for road data, geocoding precision and route support. The following list defines these values.

Road Data

  • 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.

Geocoding Precision

Dd435699.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
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.

  • Rooftop – Addresses are resolved to the latitude/longitude coordinate at the center of the address parcel.

  • Address – Addresses are interpolated to a latitude/longitude coordinate on the street in front the actual building or location.

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

  • Basic - There is no specific support for geocoding in this country/region, or this country/region has a low quality data provider. If the address is valid, Bing Maps attempts to resolve it, but a result is not guaranteed.

Routing (Driving and Walking)

  • Good – Routes within the country/region use most of the roads available.

  • Fair – Routes within the country/region use all major roads and some of the smaller roads.

  • Major Roads Only – Routes within the country/region use mostly major roads.

Dd435699.note(en-us,MSDN.10).gifNote:
Countries that are not listed in the tables below have limited Major Roads Only Road Data coverage, Basic Geocoding Precision, and Major Roads Only Routing.
