QuickStart: How to get started with Azure Maps

A while back I took part in a really cool hackathon at the Microsoft offices in Edinburgh and part of it was displaying data on an Azure Map. Now we found the docs a little less than straightforward so I put together a quick blog post and a GitHub repo

Log into Azure and create an Azure Maps Account, once you have done this gran the authentication key from the Authentication area and then grab the primary key, and then I pasted this into the html file.

I used this in the Azure Advent Calendar Maps page just zoom in to see more people.

Anyways Azure Maps has a tonne of functionality which you can read about a bit more.
