Street block RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on some visuals using Power View. I have blocks of street numbers for some publicly available crime data like this:

    6100-6199 TIDWELL RD
    9700-9799 MESA DR
    9400-9499 COVENTRY SQUARE DR

    I cannot get Bing Maps to resolve this. Is there anything I can do so I can plot on a map?

  • Bing Maps has no problem geocoding these to street level. Try adding Texas to the end of the address. Passing a street address without a city or state can be extremely difficult to locate and will often be skipped just because too many results would be returned. i.e. Nearly every single major city in the US has a Main street.

    Also note that these forums are for the Bing Maps development SDK's. Any issues with the maps in Power View should be reported to them as issues are likely due to how they implement Bing Maps rather than with Bing Maps itself.
