1. Geospatial Data Analysis on Azure Maps


    Geospatial data analysis on Azure Maps involves processing geographic information to map, visualize, and analyze data from geographic and location-based contexts. To perform geospatial data analysis using Azure Maps, you need to set up an Azure Maps Account and possibly other Azure services that can store and process geospatial data.

    Below is a Pulumi program in Python that demonstrates how to create an Azure Maps Account with Pulumi. This account will allow you to use Azure Maps APIs for various geospatial functions like rendering maps, searching for points of interest, calculating routes, and performing spatial operations.

    Here are the steps we are going to take in the program:

    1. Set up the Azure provider.
    2. Create a new Azure Maps Account using the azure-native.maps.Account resource.
    import pulumi import pulumi_azure_native as azure_native # Configure the location to deploy the resources to location = "East US" # Creating a new Azure Maps Account maps_account = azure_native.maps.Account("myAzureMapsAccount", # The location for deploying the Azure Maps Account location=location, # The SKU of the Azure Maps Account, can be 'S0' or 'S1' sku=azure_native.maps.SkuArgs( name="S0", ), # The properties of the Azure Maps Account properties={ "disableLocalAuth": False, # When set to true, disables the use of Shared Keys for authorization }, # Optionally, you can pass in tags (key-value pairs) for the resource tags={ "Environment": "Development", }, ) # To interact with Azure Maps, you'll need the Primary Key from the Maps Account. # Keep in mind that the primary key should be treated securely. primary_key = pulumi.Output.all(maps_account.name).apply( lambda args: azure_native.maps.list_account_keys(args[0]) ).apply(lambda response: response.primary_key) # Export the Azure Maps Account primary key as an output of the Pulumi program. pulumi.export("primary_key", primary_key)

    In this program:

    • myAzureMapsAccount is the name we have given to the Azure Maps Account resource. It is a unique identifier in the Pulumi deployment.
    • The location specifies where the Azure Maps Account will be provisioned. This should typically be a region close to where the users or services that will consume the Azure Maps are located.
    • The SkuArgs specifies the pricing tier and capabilities of the Azure Maps Account. There are two SKUs available: 'S0' and 'S1', where 'S0' is the base tier.
    • The properties with "disableLocalAuth": False indicates that the local authorization is not disabled, which means you can use Shared Keys for authentication. Be cautious with authentication keys and never expose them publicly.
    • The tags is an optional argument where you can set metadata for the resource in key-value pairs.

    Finally, the Azure Maps Account's primary key is exported as an output using pulumi.export. This primary key is important for authenticating requests to the Azure Maps services in your applications.

    Please ensure that you have the Azure CLI set up and configured with the right permissions and subscriptions, and Pulumi CLI installed to run this program. Also, remember to replace the placeholder values, such as myAzureMapsAccount, with the actual values you wish to use in your infrastructure.
