Seeking Query Along a Route POI Data Source RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I am interested in getting information about (North American) POIs along a route and I was excited to see the Bing Spatial Data Services Query Along A Route (NearRoute) API with an example using the FourthCoffee database.  However, according to this post, NAVTEQNA does not support the NearRoute API.

    So am I to understand that Bing provides a very useful POI API but no backend data source to support it?  That can't be right, so could someone help me locate a data source that would support POIs-Along-A-Route for North America?  Thanks.

  • Actually the Bing Maps consumer site ( uses a lot of additional data sources which can't be made available through the Bing Maps developer API's due to licensing restrictions from the data providers.

    I am investigating the along a route scenario for our NAVTEQ data sources to see if this is something we can enable.
