The Venue Maps API provides two resources that you can use to discover venues
- The Discovery Service
A customized service that returns the list of venues available in a given geographical area.
- The Venue Index
A downloadable list of the venues that the Venue Maps API supports. You can then enhance your client performance by searching for venues in a locally stored index.
- You need the venue ID to request a model.
- You need the coordinates to request a venue tile.
You use these coordinates to calculate the quadkey for the venue tile.
