Bing Maps API returns wrong Latitude and Longitude, while Bing Maps Website returns correct geolocation. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I use the API via WEBSERVICE in Excel, almost all results seem correct at first, but so far I've found one exception:

    Looking for Col du Grand-St-Bernard, it gives me Lat 46.20925522, Long 7.605564117, while the correct result from Bing Maps would be 45.86888, 7.17087. Even adding the postal code does not make a difference. Changing the search to Bourg St Pierre, which is where col du grand st bernard lies, gets me closer but it's not the exact position of course. Adding bourg st pierre to col du grand st bernard together does nothing at all.

    Any Idea why this might be or what I can do? Now I don't trust the other results and hand checking 1000+ entries defeats the purpose of automating geolocation search.
