Labs provides early adopters with an early look at emerging Cognitive Services technologies. These technologies are still under development and do not have the same performance quality as generally available APIs, but don't let that stop you from discovering and trying the newest Cognitive Services technologies. Please try these new technologies and let us know what you think.

Project Wollongong

Experimental

An API to help 'score' the attractiveness of a location, based on how many of a particular amenity are within a specific distance. Ex: proximity to transit stops, restaurants, parks, etc.

More on Project Wollongong

Does it matter to you how many cinemas, bars, theaters, parks or other kinds of places are nearby? If so, Project Wollongong is right for you. It allows you to provide a score for the attractiveness of a location based on the number of amenities, proximity to public transit stops or other criteria you set. You can search by time or distance and also take into consideration the predicted traffic at the time that matters most to you.
