Getting unexpected values from BING Maps API RRS feed

  • Question

  • User916059107 posted

    I'm trying to use Bing Maps API - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh441726

    According to the details, I can request information about the severity (LowImpact to Serious) and type (accident, congestion etc)

    I have the key, and I am querying their API and I am getting a value - so in that instance, it is working. The problem is, I'm not getting the expected value!

    Today, there is a road accident near where I live. Google maps shows it as red (severe) and as does Bing Maps.

    However, the response I get back from Bing API only shows me there are 2 minor incidents, both are temporary traffic signals

    This must only mean I'm querying the API incorrectly.

    The URL I am querying is (please note, I have a real key)


    I updated to


    In this, I specify the type explicitly but the same issue persists.

    I put the coordinates into http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html and the coordinates I chose appear to be correct (covering a section of the A1M motorway in England).

    Can any one see what I'm doing wrong and what I need to do to return if it's an accident or congestion etc (how do I return the Type and Severity)?
