Azure map migration question

We are using BingMap v8. We are using DirectionManager of Bingmap v8 to get directions between multiple waypoints.

We are planning to use Azure map. Before that, we wanted to make sure all Bingmap functionality was available in the azure map. We are not able to find the direction manager in Azure. We found link. Is this the link we need to use or there are other links available.

Also, we need to geocode the addresses. There is a sample code in C# to geocode the address.

    @Balasaheb Molawade You are looking at the right place for Azure Maps sample codes.

    I would suggest you start with the documentation Migrate from Bing Maps to Azure Maps for detailed comparison for the high-level list of Bing Maps features and the relative support for those features in Azure Maps. This list doesn’t include additional Azure Maps features such as accessibility, geofencing APIs, traffic services, spatial operations, direct map tile access, and batch services.


    Also, see Best practices for Azure Maps Route service, Azure Maps geocoding coverage

    Do let us know if that helps. If you have any further queries, feel free to comment on this post.

    There is an open-source module that has some UI for the services in Azure Maps: In particular, you can take the response from the route service in Azure Maps (from services module or raw json response), and pass it into the route instructions control which will generate nicely formatted route instructions: This control offers a lot more advanced custom styling options as well.
