Historic traffic flow data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to extract historic traffic flow data from Bing maps?  Specifically, I am looking for daily or hourly traffic flow (vehicle per hour / per day) for past dates?

    Regards

  • Hi Stephan,

    We do not have an API that returns that data but we do use aggregated historic traffic data when calculating expected arrival times and best routes.

    You could also ask this question of Azure Maps at https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/b5b027a0-c3ae-4b22-aab9-e77a8c87935e/azure-maps-forum?forum=bingmaps and see if they have anything that would work for you.

    Sincerely,

  • Thanks IoTGirl,

    Do you think there is a possibility of getting access to aggregated historic traffic data? This is really only for research purposes: we want to compare actual traffic counts with probe type data.

    I will ask Azure Maps for info.

    Thanks for the response.

  • Hi Stephan,

    We don't have an API that gives historic data and I am not sure what that would look like. However, you can call a route, now or for a future time of interest, with and without traffic to see expected traffic impacts on that route.
