Is there anyway to customize country codes for Bing Maps. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using GER as Germany country code for our application. Bing Maps does not recognize GER as country code. Does bing map only recognize ISO country codes?

    Is there anyway to customize country codes using Bing Maps Rest services?

  • Only official ISO codes are supported for countries. "Ger" is actually the name of five cities around the world and is not commonly used as country code for Germany. If you need to support this custom country code you can add logic that checks the query and changes this value to a valid ISO code such as "DE" or to the full country name before sending it to the geocoder.
