  • The data that is in the SOAP Search service is not available in the Bing Spatial Data Services. There currently is not POI data available in Bing Maps outside of the EU and NA. The Bing team is however investigating options to expose richer local business data globally through an API, we don't have a timeline yet, but are pushing internally to have something available before the end of life of the SOAP search service.

  • If you are using JavaScript you can use the Search module in the Bing Maps V7 JavaScript control. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh868062.aspx

    If you want to use a web service you can use one of the public data sources available through the Bing Spatial Data Services. There are hundreds of them, but Microsoft only documents 4 of them. 2 of them are the NAVTEQ NA and EU data sources which has data for North America and Europe. You can filter queries by specifying an entity type in your request. The entity type ID you will want if 5800 for restaurants. Here are some resources:

    There is also an older SOAP based web service called the Bing Maps SOAP search service which has a more global data set than the NAVTEQ data sources. It has all the same data that is in the JavaScript Search module so no real value in using this service over that one. SOAP based services require server side code so that would take you out of JavaScript. If you want to look into this service you can find documentation here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn448599.aspx

  • Data for India is limited. The NAVTEQ point of interest data sources are limited to North America and Europe. The search module in Bing Maps V7 or the SOAP service for Bing Maps may have some data for restaurants in India, but I haven't tried this.

  • Hi Ricky,

    Let's suppose I have developed Search Application with Bing Search SOAP services. They will be stopped in June 2017.

    What is my best option ? How to migrate my application ? The Spatial Data Services will limit my users to EU and NA unless I make consequent request to hundreds of public databases ? Where can I find the list of data sources which the previous SOAP services uses so I can migrate my application properly. I currently cannot find a way to guarantee that my clients will receive similar results when they search "restaurants in Tokyo" with Bing SOAP Search and  with Bing Spatial Data services.

    I hope you understand the general situation. There is no proper and straightforward migration flow.

    Best,

    Petar Mladenov

  • Hi Ricky,

    Should we use the new Search Apis v7 ?
