Show Bing Results on a Map

This article shows how to build a web page that uses the Bing API, Version 2 to search for Phonebook entries near a location and then displays the results on a map by using the Bing Maps AJAX Control, Version 7.0 (interactive map) or the Bing Maps REST Services (static map). The Bing Maps REST Services is used to geocode the specified location.

The complete web page is listed at the end of the article.

Setup

Get a Bing Maps Key and a Bing Application ID

You need a Bing Maps Key to use the Bing Maps APIs and a Bing Application ID to access the Bing API, Version 2. If you do not have a Bing Maps Key, see Getting a Bing Maps Key. If you do not have a Bing Application ID, see Getting Started with Bing API, Version 2.

Create a basic web page

  1. Copy the following basic HTML content and save it as a file with an .htm extension.

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" 
        "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
        <title>Search and Map</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
    </html>
    
    
  2. Add the following elements to the header section of your HTML page. These elements set the content type to UTF-8 which is recommended. The script elements setup the reference to the map control, your Bing Application ID and your Bing Maps Key.

    Hh305206.Important(en-us,MSDN.10).gifImportant:
    Make sure you replace the placeholder text below with your Bing Application ID and Bing Maps Key.

    
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
        <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=7.0"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
    
            // Replace the following string with the Bing Maps Key you received from the
            // Bing Maps Account Center http://www.bingmapsportal.com
            var BingMapsKey = "INSERT_BING_MAPS_KEY";
    
            // Replace the following string with the Application ID you received from the
            // Bing Developer Center.
            var AppId = "INSERT_BING_APPLICATION_ID"; 
    
            // Initialize the AJAX 7 map
            var map = null;
        </script>
    
    

Add a function to submit REST Services and Bing API requests

The Bing Maps REST Services and Bing API, Version 2.0 use a Representational State Transfer (REST) interface that makes HTTP requests. Insert the following function within the second set of script tags in your HTML page. This function executes REST URL requests dynamically.

        //Makes a service request for the Bing Map REST Services and Bing 2.0 Search Service
        function MakeServiceRequest(request) {
            var script = document.createElement("script");
            script.setAttribute("type", "text/javascript");
            script.setAttribute("src", request);
            document.body.appendChild(script);
        }

Add body text and user input

Insert the following HTML in the body section of your HTML page. This HTML code includes input fields for the user to specify a location and select a distance to use as “find nearby” search parameters. There are also DIV elements that will hold the search results and map.

<div style="color:#330000;font-size:larger;font-family:Arial,Sans-Serif">
    <p> Search and Map Entities Near a Location </p>
</div>
<div style="color:#003366;font-size:large;margin-bottom:10px"><span>Search for&nbsp;</span>
    <input id="queryTerm" type="text" value="Insert search term" size="30" />  
</div>
<div style="color:#003366;font-size:large"><span>Search within&nbsp;</span>
    <select id="distance">
        <option value="1">1</option>
        <option value="5">5</option>
        <option value="10" selected="selected">10</option>
        <option value="25">25</option>
        <option value="50">50</option>
        <option value="100">100</option>
        <option value="200">200</option>  
        <option value="400">400</option>
    </select><span>&nbsp;kilometers of&nbsp;</span>
    <input id="address" type="text" value="Insert Location/Address" size="30" />  
    <input type="button" value="Search" onclick="Geocode()" />
</div> 
<div>
    <div id="mapDiv" style="padding-left:10px;"></div>
    <div id="output" style="float:left;" ></div>
</div>

Geocode the location using the REST Services

Insert the following functions within the second set of script tags. When the user inputs a location, the Geocode function builds a REST URL request that geocodes the location data and returns a JSON response. The Bing Maps REST Services Find a Location by Address API is used to geocode the location information. The response is provided to the GetLocationCoordinates JSON callback function to retrieve the geocoded latitude and longitude from the response. These coordinates are then passed to the Search function defined in the next section.

        //Geocode the location specified by the user
        function Geocode() {
            //Create Bing Maps REST Services request to geocode the address provided by the user
            var geocodeRequest = "http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Locations/"
               + document.getElementById('address').value
               + "?output=json"
               //Set the callback function
               + "&jsonp=GetLocationCoordinates"
               + "&key=" + BingMapsKey;
            //Submit the request
            MakeServiceRequest(geocodeRequest);
        }

        //Get the geocoded latitude and longitude from the response
        function GetLocationCoordinates(geocodeResponse) {
            if (geocodeResponse &&
                   geocodeResponse.resourceSets &&
                   geocodeResponse.resourceSets.length > 0 &&
                   geocodeResponse.resourceSets[0].resources &&
                   geocodeResponse.resourceSets[0].resources.length > 0) {

                Search(geocodeResponse.resourceSets[0].resources[0].point.coordinates[0], geocodeResponse.resourceSets[0].resources[0].point.coordinates[1]);

            }
            else {//The location could not be geocoded
                document.getElementById("output").innerHTML = "";
                var output = document.getElementById("output");
                var resultsHeader = document.createElement("h4");
                output.appendChild(resultsHeader);
                resultsHeader.innerHTML = "The location could not be geocoded";
            }
        }

Search for Phonebook entries using the specified query string

Insert the following Search function with the second set of script tags. The Search function creates a Bing, Version 2.0 request for Phonebook results that match the query string provided by the user.

        // Search for Phonebook results using the Bing, Version 2.0 API
        // and the query string provided by the user
        function Search(lat, long) {
            //Get the distance to search selected by the user
            var distance = document.getElementById('distance').value;

            queryString = document.getElementById('queryTerm').value;
            if ((queryString != null)&&(queryString !="Insert search term")){
                var requestStr = "http://api.bing.net/json.aspx?"                
                // Common request fields (required)
                + "AppId=" + AppId
                + "&Query=" + queryString
                + "&Sources=Phonebook"

                // Common request fields 
                + "&Version=2.0"
                + "&Market=en-us"
                + "&UILanguage=en"
                + "&Latitude=" + lat
                + "&Longitude=" + long
                + "&Radius=" + distance
                + "&Options=EnableHighlighting"

                // Phonebook-specific request fields (optional)
                + "&Phonebook.Count=10"
                + "&Phonebook.Offset=0"
                + "&Phonebook.FileType=YP"
                + "&Phonebook.SortBy=Distance"

                // Set the JSON callback function
                + "&JsonType=callback"
                + "&JsonCallback=MapResults";

                var output = document.getElementById("output");
                //Make URL service request
                MakeServiceRequest(requestStr);
                }
             else {//The query string is undefined.
                document.getElementById("output").innerHTML = "";
                var output = document.getElementById("output");
                var resultsHeader = document.createElement("h4");
                output.appendChild(resultsHeader);
                resultsHeader.innerHTML = "Please enter a query string.";
       
            }
        }

Show results on an interactive map

Insert the following functions within the second set of script tags. The MapResults function displays the address information for the search results and shows the locations on an Bing Maps AJAX Control 7.0 interactive map. The ReplaceHighlightingCharacters function replaces encoded characters in the location information with HTML <strong> characters.

        //Show search results and display the corresponding locations
        // on an interactive (AJAX 7) map
        function MapResults(response) {
            //Create list of results
            document.getElementById("output").innerHTML = "";
            var output = document.getElementById("output");
            var resultsHeader = document.createElement("h4");
            var resultsList = document.createElement("ol");
            output.appendChild(resultsHeader);
            output.appendChild(resultsList);


            if (response.SearchResponse.Phonebook != null) {
                //Get phonebook results
                var results = response.SearchResponse.Phonebook.Results;

                //Create pushpin collection
                var pushpins = new Microsoft.Maps.EntityCollection();

                //initialize bounds for map area
                var minLatitude = results[0].Latitude; var maxLatitude = results[0].Latitude;
                var minLongitude = results[0].Longitude; var maxLongitude = results[0].Longitude;

                // Display the results header.
                resultsHeader.innerHTML = "Phonebook results for "
                     + response.SearchResponse.Query.SearchTerms;

                // Display the Phonebook results.
                var resultsListItem = null;
                var resultStr = "";

                for (var i = 0; i < results.length; ++i) {
                    resultsListItem = document.createElement("li");
                    resultsList.appendChild(resultsListItem);

                map = new Microsoft.Maps.Map(document.getElementById("mapDiv"), { credentials: BingMapsKey, height: 400, width: 400, mapTypeId: "r" });

                //Add pushpins to the map

View in browser

You have now created a web application. Save your file and view it in a browser such as Internet Explorer. Some browsers, such as Internet Explorer 9, may require you to allow the use of scripts on the page. Make sure to insert your Bing Maps Key and Bing Application ID before viewing.

Alternative: Show the results on a static map

If you prefer to show the search results on a static map, use the following StaticMapResults function in place of the MapResults function. To do this, insert this function in the second set of script tags and change the JSON Callback function for the Bing Spatial Data Services from MapResults to StaticMapResults. The StaticMapResults function uses a Get a Static Map REST URL that is part of the Bing Maps REST Services Imagery API.

StaticMapResults function

         function StaticMapResults(response) {
            //Create list of results
