Microsoft Azure Maps Render Client Library for Python
Azure Maps Render Package client library for Python
This package contains a Python SDK for Azure Maps Services for Render. Read more about Azure Maps Services here
Azure SDK Python packages support for Python 2.7 has ended 01 January 2022. For more information and questions, please refer to https://github.com/Azure/azure-sdk-for-python/issues/20691
- Python 3.7 or later is required to use this package.
- An Azure subscription and an Azure Maps account.
- A deployed Maps Services resource. You can create the resource via Azure Portal or Azure CLI.
If you use Azure CLI, replace
<account-name> of your choice, and select a proper pricing tier based on your needs via the
<sku-name> parameter. Please refer to this page for more details.
az maps account create --resource-group <resource-group-name> --account-name <account-name> --sku <sku-name>
Install the package
Install the Azure Maps Service Render SDK.
pip install azure-maps-render
Create and Authenticate the MapsRenderClient
To create a client object to access the Azure Maps Render API, you will need a credential object. Azure Maps Render client also support two ways to authenticate.
1. Authenticate with a Subscription Key Credential
You can authenticate with your Azure Maps Subscription Key.
Once the Azure Maps Subscription Key is created, set the value of the key as environment variable:
Then pass an
AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY as the
credential parameter into an instance of AzureKeyCredential.
from azure.core.credentials import AzureKeyCredential from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient credential = AzureKeyCredential(os.environ.get("AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY")) render_client = MapsRenderClient( credential=credential, )
2. Authenticate with an Azure Active Directory credential
- Install azure-identity
- Register a new AAD application
- Grant access to Azure Maps by assigning the suitable role to your service principal. Please refer to the Manage authentication page.
Next, set the values of the client ID, tenant ID, and client secret of the AAD application as environment variables:
You will also need to specify the Azure Maps resource you intend to use by specifying the
clientId in the client options. The Azure Maps resource client id can be found in the Authentication sections in the Azure Maps resource. Please refer to the documentation on how to find it.
from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient from azure.identity import DefaultAzureCredential credential = DefaultAzureCredential() render_client = MapsRenderClient( client_id="<Azure Maps Client ID>", credential=credential )
The Azure Maps Render client library for Python allows you to interact with each of the components through the use of a dedicated client object.
MapsRenderClient is the primary client for developers using the Azure Maps Render client library for Python.
Once you initialized a
MapsRenderClient class, you can explore the methods on this client object to understand the different features of the Azure Maps Render service that you can access.
Async clients and credentials should be closed when they're no longer needed. These
objects are async context managers and define async
The following sections provide several code snippets covering some of the most common Azure Maps Render tasks, including:
- Get Maps Attribution
- Get Maps Static Image
- Get Maps Tile
- Get Maps Tileset
- Get Maps Copyright for World
Get Maps Attribution
This request allows users to request map copyright attribution information for a section of a tileset.
from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient result = maps_render_client.get_map_attribution( tileset_id=TilesetID.MICROSOFT_BASE, zoom=6, bounds=BoundingBox( south=42.982261, west=24.980233, north=56.526017, east=1.355233 ) )
Get Maps Tile
This request will return map tiles in vector or raster formats typically to be integrated into a map control or SDK. Some example tiles that can be requested are Azure Maps road tiles, real-time Weather Radar tiles. By default, Azure Maps uses vector tiles for its web map control (Web SDK) and Android SDK.
from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient result = maps_render_client.get_map_tile( tileset_id=TilesetID.MICROSOFT_BASE, z=6, x=9, y=22, tile_size="512" )
Get Maps Tileset
This request will give metadata for a tileset.
from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient result = maps_render_client.get_map_tileset(tileset_id=TilesetID.MICROSOFT_BASE)
Get Maps Static Image
This request will provide the static image service renders a user-defined, rectangular image containing a map section using a zoom level from 0 to 20. The static image service renders a user-defined, rectangular image containing a map section using a zoom level from 0 to 20. And also save the result to file as png.
from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient result = maps_render_client.get_map_static_image(img_format="png", center=(52.41064,4.84228)) # Save result to file as png file = open('result.png', 'wb') file.write(next(result)) file.close()
Get Maps Copyright for World
This request will serve copyright information for Render Tile service.
from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient result = maps_render_client.get_copyright_for_world()
Maps Render clients raise exceptions defined in Azure Core.
This list can be used for reference to catch thrown exceptions. To get the specific error code of the exception, use the
error_code attribute, i.e,
This library uses the standard logging library for logging. Basic information about HTTP sessions (URLs, headers, etc.) is logged at INFO level.
Detailed DEBUG level logging, including request/response bodies and unredacted headers, can be enabled on a client with the
import sys import logging from azure.maps.render import MapsRenderClient # Create a logger for the 'azure.maps.render' SDK logger = logging.getLogger('azure.maps.render') logger.setLevel(logging.DEBUG) # Configure a console output handler = logging.StreamHandler(stream=sys.stdout) logger.addHandler(handler)
Still running into issues? If you encounter any bugs or have suggestions, please file an issue in the Issues section of the project.
More sample code
Several Azure Maps Render Python SDK samples are available to you in the SDK's GitHub repository. These samples provide example code for additional scenarios commonly encountered while working with Maps Render
set AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_KEY="<RealSubscriptionKey>" pip install azure-maps-render --pre python samples/sample_authentication.py python sample/sample_get_copyright_caption.py python sample/sample_get_copyright_for_tile.py python sample/sample_get_copyright_for_world.py python sample/sample_get_copyright_from_bounding_box.py python sample/sample_get_map_attribution.py python sample/sample_get_map_static_image.py python sample/sample_get_map_tile.py python sample/sample_get_map_tileset.py
--preflag can be optionally added, it is to include pre-release and development versions for
pip install. By default,
piponly finds stable versions.
