Entity Id in Bing Maps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys,

    I am migrating from mappoint to bing. Well i use the entityid in mappoint for the country region, such as Germany and Deutscheland has the same value of 94. Now I am not sure what would be the bing equivalent of it.

    Can you guys kindly help me.

  • There is no Bing Maps equivalent. What you can do is use the country table list of entity and the reverse geocoder. When using the reverse geocoder you can have it only return the country region. You can then cross reference this with the list of countries here: this will allow you to get the entity id for the countries. Note that you will likely need to add a bit of logic to search through the ISO columns if the returned country is only 2 or 3 characters long.
