Azure Maps routing coverage

This article provides coverage information for Azure Maps routing. Upon a search query, Azure Maps returns an optimal route from location A to location B. You're provided with accurate travel times, live updates of travel information, and route instructions. You can also add more search parameters such as current traffic, vehicle type, and conditions to avoid. The optimization of the route depends on the region. That's because, Azure Maps has various levels of information and accuracy for different regions. The tables in this article list the regions and what kind of information you can request for them.

Routing information supported

In the Azure Maps routing coverage tables, the following information is available.

Calculate Route

The Calculate Route service calculates a route between an origin and a destination, passing through waypoints if they're specified. For more information, see Get Route Directions in the REST API documentation.

Calculate Reachable Range

The Calculate Reachable Range service calculates a set of locations that can be reached from the origin point. For more information, see Get Route Range in the REST API documentation.

Matrix Routing

The Matrix Routing service calculates travel time and distance between all possible pairs in a list of origins and destinations. It does not provide any detailed information about the routes. You can get one-to-many, many-to-one, or many-to-many route options simply by varying the number of origins and/or destinations. For more information, see Matrix Routing service in the REST API documentation.

Real-time Traffic

Delivers real-time information about traffic jams, road closures, and a detailed view of the current speed and travel times across the entire road network. For more information, see Traffic in the REST API documentation.

Truck routes

The Azure Maps Truck Routing API provides travel routes which take truck attributes into consideration. Truck attributes include things such as width, height, weight, turning radius and type of cargo. This is important as not all trucks can travel the same routes as other vehicles. Here are some examples:

  • Bridges have heights and weight limits.
  • Tunnels often have restrictions on flammable or hazardous materials.
  • Longer trucks have difficulty making tight turns.
  • Highways often have a separate speed limit for trucks.
  • Certain trucks may want to avoid roads that have steep gradients.

Azure Maps supports truck routing in the countries/regions indicated in the tables below.
