  • there is no built in way to do this, however you can achieve this by reverse geocoding coordinates over a grid pattern. This will generate a lot of transactions and not generally recommended, but you can find a blog post on how to do this here: https://rbrundritt.wordpress.com/2010/01/09/reverse-geocoding-over-a-search-area/

  • Yes, as it is the data you are licensing. The next time your device goes online the service will sync up with the reporting servers and the number of reverse geocodes that have been generated when offline. Note that Bing Maps provides 50,000 free transactions/requests a day for Windows based apps.

  • Transactions are counted for all usage of the app, not individual users. Transactions are recorded and detailed reports are available in the Bing Maps portal, assuming you created a Bing Maps account there and not through Azure. Bing Maps keys created through Azure currently have limited reporting functionality through Azure and for privacy reasons (i.e. sharing data between sites) are not available through the Bing Maps portal.

  • If you created your key in the Bing Maps portal, then transactions will show up in the reports. It may take a few days for the reports to show the transactions as it takes time for all the servers to sync up with this data.

  • Ah, WP8 won't show up in the portal as your don't use Bing Maps keys in WP8, you use a service token from the Windows Phone dev center.

  • Is reverse geocoding billable using offline maps ?

    I'm currently using reverse geo on a device with no internet connection or is this because I'm still using the WP8 control ?
