Azure Search vs Google Maps: What are the differences?

What is Azure Search? Search-as-a-service for web and mobile app development. Azure Search makes it easy to add powerful and sophisticated search capabilities to your website or application. Quickly and easily tune search results and construct rich, fine-tuned ranking models to tie search results to business goals. Reliable throughput and storage provide fast search indexing and querying to support time-sensitive search scenarios.

What is Google Maps? Build highly customisable maps with your own content and imagery. Create rich applications and stunning visualisations of your data, leveraging the comprehensiveness, accuracy, and usability of Google Maps and a modern web platform that scales as you grow.

Azure Search belongs to "Search as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Google Maps can be primarily classified under "Mapping APIs".

Some of the features offered by Azure Search are:

  • Powerful, reliable performance
  • Easily tune search indices to meet business goals
  • Scale out simply

On the other hand, Google Maps provides the following key features:

  • Maps Image APIs
  • Places API
  • Web Services

"Easy to set up" is the primary reason why developers consider Azure Search over the competitors, whereas "Free" was stated as the key factor in picking Google Maps.

    We need to integrate maps in mobile Apps and Web frontend to show where an event is taking place. Maps is best because of it's international availability and the google api with a feature to recursive search.

    Location, location, location. Choropleths are hot for a reason. When dealing with geography and housing why stop at bar charts, the map really makes my data quickly comprehensible to humans.
