Visualize what’s near and far

You can use the Bing Maps Isochrone API to plan the area that can be reached from a designated starting point within a set time period. Try the demo to see how it works.

An Isochrone is the shape representing travel time or distance. They can be very useful in filtering search results. Try it:

How it works

For example by querying a dataset of gas stations using Bing Spatial Data Services, you can manipulate the slider to see the gas stations that are within a 10, 15, 20, and 25-minute drive or walk from the center of the map.

This time-based search provides a visualization of the area in the form of a polygon and then filters the pushpins on the map that are within the isochrone. This is useful when performing queries like "Which locations are within 15 minutes of here." Move the map to load data for the new map view. Click on a pushpin to see some basic information for that location.
