Getting started

Install the package

Install the Azure Maps client library for .NET you'd like to use with NuGet and the Azure.Maps.Common client library will be included. Choose the packages you want to install:

dotnet add package Azure.Maps.Search --prerelease
dotnet add package Azure.Maps.Routing --prerelease
dotnet add package Azure.Maps.Rendering --prerelease
dotnet add package Azure.Maps.Geolocation --prerelease


You must have an Azure subscription and Azure Maps account.

To create a new Azure Maps account, you can use the Azure Portal, Azure PowerShell, or the Azure CLI. Here's an example using the Azure CLI:

az maps account create --kind "Gen2" --account-name "myMapAccountName" --resource-group "<resource group>" --sku "G2"

Authenticate the client

There are 2 ways to authenticate the client: Shared key authentication and Azure AD. Please refer to other Azure Maps packages for detailed description.

Key concepts

The Azure Maps Common client library contains shared infrastructure like LocalizedMapView and RequestFailedException.

Thread safety

We guarantee that all client instance methods are thread-safe and independent of each other (guideline). This ensures that the recommendation of reusing client instances is always safe, even across threads.

Additional concepts

Client options | Accessing the response | Long-running operations | Handling failures | Diagnostics | Mocking | Client lifetime


Please see the examples for Search, Routing, Rendering and Geolocation.


If instantiate a null LocalizedMapView, the program will throw a ArgumentNullException error.
