Bing traffic api

    Question

  • I am using the Bing traffic API for getting the traffic info in a particular region.

    As you might be aware this uses the Bounding box for providing data.

    I have read quite a lot about Bounding box but was not able to understand it completely(sorry for that.)

    Some how I found the code that provides the bounding box accepting coordinates and the distance. I have used the coordinates as : 42.991169,-71.463089 and distance as 10 km. The bounding box that I am getting is having following coordinates:

    43.036154579568404,-71.40158782044901  |   42.946183420431595,-71.52459017955098

    First of all since I was not able to understand completely, I don't even know if these are being calculated correctly.

    Secondly, when I call the API using these parameters I get : "This parameter value is out of range". The url shall be: 

    http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Traffic/Incidents/43.036154579568404,-71.40158782044901,42.946183420431595,-71.52459017955098?key=KEY

    Please help
