This Microsoft Azure Regions Interactive Map shows the locations of each of the Microsoft Azure cloud regions plotted on a map. The map code is built using the Azure Maps Web SDK

Disclaimer: This is an unofficial map of Azure Regions and is not endorsed by or affiliated with Microsoft. The official Azure region data may differ from what is displayed here.

This map was last updated August 28, 2022 with the latest list of Azure Regions.



Frequently Asked Questions

How many Azure Regions are there?

Microsoft Azure currently consists of 60+ regions worldwide, available in 140 countries.

What’s the source of this Azure Region location data?

The following Azure CLI commands were used to retrieve the Latitude / Longitude (geocode) coordinates of each of the Microsoft Azure Regions (or locations):

# Azure CLI 2.0
az account list-locations > azure_regions.json

# Azure CLI 1.0
azure location list --json > azure_regions.json

This Azure CLI command will output a JSON file containing the Azure Region data. This JSON file is pulled directly into this app for display.

Additional data has been manually compiled / generated to include non-Public Cloud regions / locations; such as Germany, China, and the US Gov / DoD as well.

All geocode locations for Azure Regions are estimates. They do not represent the actual physical location for specific data centers.

More specifically, Here’s the command used to generate the JSON of Azure Regions that is displayed on the map:

az account list-locations -o json --query "[].{displayName:displayName,latitude:metadata.latitude,longitude:metadata.longitude,name:name}" > azure_regions.json

The data generated is in the following format with just the data needed by the JavaScript that generates the above map:

[
  {
    "displayName": "East US",
    "latitude": "37.3719",
    "longitude": "-79.8164",
    "name": "eastus"
  },

How accurate are the points / geocodes?

The accuracy is basically to the general geographic region where the Azure Regions are located. Microsoft doesn’t disclose the actual location or street address of the physical datacenters for security reasons. Much of the data on this map is taken directly from the geocode that Microsoft publishes for the datacenters. Other data (such as Germany, China, and US Gov / DoD) just point to the City or Region that Microsoft has indicated the region is in.
