Azure Maps SDK Render client library for Java - version 1.0.0-beta.2

Azure Maps SDK Render client library for Java.

This package contains Microsoft Azure SDK for Render Management SDK which contains Azure Maps Render REST APIs. Azure Maps Render retrieves copyrigt information or map/state tiles. For documentation on how to use this package, please see Azure Maps Render.

Getting started


Adding the package to your product


Azure Maps Libraries require a TokenCredential implementation for authentication and an HttpClient implementation for HTTP client.

Azure Identity package and Azure Core Netty HTTP package provide the default implementation.


By default, Azure Active Directory token authentication depends on correct configure of following environment variables.

  • AZURE_CLIENT_ID for Azure client ID.
  • AZURE_TENANT_ID for Azure tenant ID.
  • AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET or AZURE_CLIENT_CERTIFICATE_PATH for client secret or client certificate.

In addition, Azure subscription ID can be configured via environment variable AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID.

With above configuration, azure client can be authenticated by following code:

// Authenticates using Azure AD building a default credential
// This will look for AZURE_CLIENT_ID, AZURE_TENANT_ID, and AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET env variables
DefaultAzureCredential tokenCredential = new DefaultAzureCredentialBuilder().build();

// Creates a builder
MapsRenderClientBuilder builder = new MapsRenderClientBuilder();
builder.httpLogOptions(new HttpLogOptions().setLogLevel(HttpLogDetailLevel.BODY_AND_HEADERS));

// Builds a client
MapsRenderClient client = builder.buildClient();

The sample code assumes global Azure. Please change AzureEnvironment.AZURE variable if otherwise.

See Authentication for more options.

Key concepts

Get Map Tile

System.out.println("Get Map Tile");
MapTileOptions mapTileOptions = new MapTileOptions();
mapTileOptions.setTileIndex(new TileIndex().setX(10).setY(22).setZ(6));

Get Map Tileset

System.out.println("Get Map Tileset");
new TilesetId();

Get Map Attribution

System.out.println("Get Map Attribution");
GeoBoundingBox bounds = new GeoBoundingBox(-122.414162, 47.57949, -122.247157, 47.668372);
new TilesetId();
client.getMapAttribution(TilesetId.MICROSOFT_BASE, 6, bounds);

Get Copyright Caption

System.out.println("Get Copyright Caption");

Get Map Static Image

System.out.println("Get Map Static Image");
GeoBoundingBox bbox = new GeoBoundingBox(1.355233, 42.982261, 24.980233, 56.526017);
new StaticMapLayer();
new RasterTileFormat();
MapStaticImageOptions mapStaticImageOptions = new MapStaticImageOptions().setStaticMapLayer(StaticMapLayer.BASIC)

Get Copyright From Bounding Box

GeoBoundingBox boundingBox = new GeoBoundingBox(52.41064, 4.84228, 52.41072, 4.84239);
client.getCopyrightFromBoundingBox(boundingBox, true);

Get Copyright For Tile

client.getCopyrightForTile(new TileIndex().setX(9).setY(22).setZ(6), true);

Get Copyright For World



When you interact with the Azure Maps Services, errors returned by the Maps service correspond to the same HTTP status codes returned for REST API requests.

For example, if you search with an invalid coordinate, a error is returned, indicating "Bad Request".400
