I am currently using Azure maps inside my blazor app and running it locally. The usage in Azure is around 12k for the last 2 weeks and my azure cost hasnt increased. My blazor app only displays a number of locations on top of the azure map in satellite view. I have already checked the pricing and it doesnt make sense for this type of usage. Any help is appreciated!

    I took a look at my account and seeing something similar. It appears that they are now logging all requests to Azure Maps, but many of those are free. Basically, the web map controls styling use multiple layers of tiles for the road style for performance (these could have been merged into a single layer but performance would have been impacted, so it appears they are providing these extra layers free so they can prioritize performance), attributes, glyphs (fonts used for vector tiles), and style files. Here is a screen shot from my account (apply split by API name):
