You will have to look at alternate data providers for imagery. Some transit authorities make the kind of imagery you are asking for available. https://www.mapillary.com/ might also be an option.
How to get higher resolution streetside images?
I am building a transit tracker app and I would like to display a picture of the bus stop in my app.
Looking at the streetside image returned by the API it's very low quality.
I am not really interesting in building a panorama or seeing adjacent images. I just need a single image. How can I get a higher resolution image?
And also what are all the parameters I can use with the streetside API end point? Can I use a resolution parameter?
This article doesn't seem to mention any except the coordinates and API key?
Thanks for reaching out on this forum. Please check the documentation on mapSize
mapSize ms Optional.
The width and height in pixels of the static map output.
A string that contains a width and a height separated by a comma. The width must be between 80 and 2000 pixels and the height must be between 80 and 1500 pixels.
The default map size for static maps is 350 pixels by 350 pixels.
For streetside maps, the maximum size is limited to 400 pixels by 400 pixels when using a basic account key. If a larger size is needed, you will need an enterprise key.
In this URL, you can specify the
heading(direction of the camera) of the location you want to view. You can also include a Bing Maps API key in the URL to authenticate your API request.
To adjust the resolution of the image, you can adjust the
mapSizeparameter to the desired width and height in pixels. For example, setting
mapSize=1280,1280will give you a 1280 x 1280 pixel image, which is four times the size of the default image.
You should also be aware of the usage and pricing limits for the Bing Maps service, which may be affected by your use of high-resolution images.
