    Another great presentation on Azure Maps & Geo-fencing. Another App tool that I intend to do some deeper research on. There appears to be a ton of potential use cases for this technology.

    Why set boundaries?

    Depending on where/how data is merged, you may not want a large set incorporated into the small set. Think of an example of floods vs remediation money to allocate: if you stay focused on a boundary you can work layers/shapes to allocate the money, but if you zoom out you may incorporate a lot more flood data points than you have and lose focus for where the money can be spent.

    Also, depending on volume, you may not want to fetch repeatedly, which has a Maps transaction cost. Limit the transactions and make more maps available to your clients without spending more than you have to.
