Imagery Metadata Birdseye imagerySet - zoomLevel doesn't affect the response RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm new to the Bing Maps Rest Services and I'm trying to generate a static birdseye view map for given lat,lng coordinates that's as zoomed in as possible. My request looks as follows:

    https://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Imagery/Metadata/BirdseyeWithLabels/33.769340,-84.393599?key=<MY API KEY>&uriScheme=https&zoomLevel=20

    No matter what valid zoomLevel I set, it doesn't affect the zoom level of the tileset in the response. Can anybody help me please? I'm looking at the documentation here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff701716.aspx

    Here is a fiddle I created with my example code: https://jsfiddle.net/godoshian/gge0gco0/ (note: insert your own api key)

  • Birdseye imagery is only available through the Bing Maps interactive map controls. Static images are not exposed through the REST services. Note that the URL you are using is for getting metadata about an image which is a JSON response, not a static image.
