How to create bounded tile layers in Bing Maps (JavaScript)


How to create bounded tile layers in Bing Maps (JavaScript)

Tile layers are a great way to visualize a lot of data on a map and still have good performance. Depending on the type of data you are displaying as a tile layer, you may find that it is localized to a small part of the world. If this is the case then you will want to limit the loading of tiles in your app to that area. Otherwise you will end up with a lot of extra requests being made to your tile service for nothing. In this blog post, I will show you how to create bounded tile layers in Bing Maps AJAX Control Version 7 and the Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps control.

Bing Maps supports tile layers in all of its map controls and has done so for a long time. Many of these controls provide methods for limiting tile layers to a specific bounding box or zoom level range. In the Bing Maps AJAX Control Version 7 and Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps JavaScript map controls tile layers are designed to be much more customizable. Instead of providing properties for restricting the region the tile layer renders in, it gives us the ability to provide a callback function where we can add advanced functionality for loading tile layers. In this blog post we are going to see how we can create a custom tile layer in Bing Maps AJAX Control Version 7 and the Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps JavaScript map controls that is limited to a bounding box area and a zoom level range. In addition, we will also make it so that this tile layer can support tile services that use quadkey, x y and zoom, or bounding box naming conventions for retrieving tiles. In this blog post we will cover how to create a custom tile layer in Bing Maps AJAX Control Version 7 and the Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps JavaScript map controls that is limited to a bounding box area and a zoom level range. Also, we will make it so that this tile layer can support tile services that use quadkey, x y and zoom, or bounding box naming conventions for retrieving tiles.
