Max zoom level for static aerial map with REST imagery API RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am retrieving a static aerial map from Bing maps via the REST imagery API.  Some geographic areas seem to support a greater zoom level than other areas.

    For example, this location supports a zoom level up to 21: http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Imagery/Map/Aerial/33.049101,-96.822731/21?key=someKey

    But this location seems to max out at 19: http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Imagery/Map/Aerial/38.82716,-97.6352/19?key=someKey

    If a zoom level of 19 is exceeded, an image is returned but the image contains nothing more than a camera with a slash through it, indicating that the maximum zoom level has been exceeded.

    Is there a way to call the API to determine the maximum zoom that will return a valid aerial image?

    Thanks,

    Skip
