Bing Spatial Data Services


The Bing™ Spatial Data Services Application Programming Interface (API) provides a Representational State Transfer (REST) interface that can geocode, store and query spatial data. This simple REST interface accomplishes tasks by setting parameters in a URL and then submitting the URL as an HTTP request. The HTTP response returns the results of the request.

With the Bing Spatial Data Services, you can:

Bing Maps Account Center (alternative): You can also manage data sources and geocode using the Bing Maps Account Center. For more information, see Creating and Managing Data Sources.

Transaction accounting is provided when you use the Bing Spatial Data Services. For more information about billable and non-billable transactions for the Bing Spatial Data Services, see Usage Transactions. There are also some use limits for this API. For more information, see Geocode and Data Source Limits
