python data maps SDK results in corrupt PNG output

Richard Kooijman 0 Reputation points

I run the attached simple Python test to generate a PNG file from Azure Data Maps API.

In some cases I get a blue picture with a signature, but most of the time I get a corrupt PNG that does not reflect what I am looking for: partial image, or macOS Preview won't even show something.

Does anybody see what's wrong?

I also tried a Java version of this functionality and works as expected.

Same subscription, same data maps account, etc, just in another language and a different SDK from Azure (python vs Java).

    Hi @Richard Kooijman Greetings! Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum. Thank you for posting this question here.

    I am just wondering if you have tried the async approach to get the static image. Please find the implementation for this through the link Here is the code sample for your reference.

        This sample demonstrates how to the static image service renders a user-defined, rectangular image containing a map section using a zoom level from 0 to 20. The static image service renders a user-defined, rectangular image containing a map section using a zoom level from 0 to 20.
        Set the environment variables with your own values before running the sample:
        - AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY - your subscription key
    import asyncio
    import os
    subscription_key = os.getenv("AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY")
    async def get_map_static_image_async():
        # [START get_map_static_image_async]
        from azure.core.credentials import AzureKeyCredential
        from azure.maps.render.aio import MapsRenderClient
        maps_render_client = MapsRenderClient(credential=AzureKeyCredential(subscription_key))
        async with maps_render_client:
            result = await maps_render_client.get_map_static_image(img_format="png", center=(52.41064,4.84228))
        # [END get_map_static_image_async]
    if __name__ == '__main__':

    Please give it a try and let us know if this helps.
