Street locating in Poland does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to use Bing Maps in Poland, to localize some streets, but it don't work :-/

    Also direction feature isn't working. 

    I read post from 2008(?) that bing maps searching was limited only to city.

    Now, we have Q1 2012 and still didn't work and as being a developer, bing maps are useless.

    Is there any date when street searching will be availabe or we should use alternative maps?

    Without this feature, bing maps are useless in Poland.

    Best Regards

    MrGrygson.

  • Hello,

    According to the documentation, Poland has this coverage:

    • Street data: full
    • Geocoding: basic
    • Routing: basic

    Since the support for geocoding and routing are basic, you can't have the geocoding accuracy at a street level for the moment.
    We don't have any information about the roadmap concerning the data and geocoding inclusion but I'm pretty sure that the ball was not only on Microsoft's side since they're using data from provider and agreements must be found to support this countries.

    Also, we've seen a lot of improvement in various place concerning geocoding and routing, we should have Poland with full coverage and full features in the near future. If the question is mainly about 'when will it be available?' then I recommend you to contact your Microsoft representative so they can reach the technical team to answer this according to your project.
