Introducing the Bing Maps Autosuggest API, the newest addition to the Bing Maps REST services. The Autosuggest API is used to return a ranked list of suggested entities based on a user's partial query. The service can return three possible entity types: Addresses (including roads), points of interest, and businesses (currently available in the US only with new markets coming soon).
A maximum of ten (10) autosuggested entities can be returned per request, and the returned entities can be delimited by country and culture. The response can be specified for either JSON or XML format.
Check out Bing Maps Autosuggest API and let us know what you think. You can connect with the team at the Bing Maps Forums to share feedback and let us know what you would like to see next.
