Azure Maps Creator is now in General Availability
News|7 June 2021
Leverage indoor mapping capabilities in your apps
In just one year since the public preview launch, Azure Maps Creator is now in GA. At its core, Azure Maps Creator provides an end-to-end solution for private indoor mapping, enabling customers to convert their facility floor plans into indoor map feature data. The indoor map features are stored as a Dataset which is used to power downstream services while the Web Feature Service (WFS) offers data management and querying. Tile sets are created to provide data visualisation while the Feature State set provides a method to dynamically reflect real-time events on distinct visual features.
During the past year, industries have been working to address COVID challenges, which include keeping workers and customers safe, managing the coordination of constantly evolving guidelines and accelerating automation and activity monitoring. To meet this need, the role of Azure Maps Creator has expanded from the original design goal of the service to be applied across a variety of technologies and industries.
Azure Maps Creator is available initially in the following regions: West US 2, East US 2, West Europe, and North Europe. The latest version of the API (V2) and the second generation of the Azure Maps Business Model are also available in this GA. If you have tried V1, you will find the conversion service for drawings has been improved and comes with a fully documented indoor map ontology, exposed via open geospatial standards for boundless integration opportunities for both developers and GIS users.
Since the public preview, many customers and partners have adopted Azure Maps Creator to build innovative smart building solutions, and it is being used internally at Microsoft to enable employee experiences through Smart Building services.
