Azure Maps Pricing Estimation

We'd like to integrate Azure Maps exclusively for the indoor maps module. All we want to do is host an interactive floor plan on our intranet that users can click to view employee details, extension, e-mail, etc. We only have about 110 employees at the moment, it's a lightweight effort.

I reviewed the Azure Maps pricing details for the Standard S0 plan and it doesn't appear we would incur any costs since we are only hosting a floorplan map for a single floor with 100 offices. Can someone confirm this?

The pricing details state that costs are incurred for every 1,000 transactions (1 transaction = 15 tiles), however I am a bit confused how this can be applied for my intended usage with an internal floorplan map.

    If you are using the indoor module, then you would have to use the Azure Maps Creator platform which is only available with a S1 license.

    If you have your own tile layer or some other form of indoor data that you can overlay without the indoor module (which only works with the Creator services), then you could connect to the data within intranet without connecting to any Azure Maps services. You would only need an Azure Maps account if you wanted to show base maps. If not using base maps, I recommend setting the map style to "blank" and set the "enableAccessibility" option of the map to false when loading it so that the screen reader doesn't try to call Azure Maps services. If you do those two things, then no Azure Maps service would be called and thus no Azure Maps key would be needed to use the map. You may see an error message in the console about the lack of credentials, but the map should work fine.
