  1. Keep the old birds eye view

    Keep the old birds eye view so you can see the old view of a location so you can see what used to be there.

    • Preserve outdated bird's eye views

      Recently Bing Maps announced upcoming updates to the Bird View for my city (namely - Riga, Latvia). Currently bird eye view for Riga is around 10 years old (2007-08), considered by some as outdated. I am historian and I am part of Riga historian society. We are using Bing maps to research our city's history in recent 15 years. By updating Bing Maps Bird View, Bing would simply kill all our activities and the history will be lost. Please preserve old pictures! We do not need updated bird eyes' for Riga and Latvia! Or is there any possibility to download…

      • Work with open street maps so that map data is more accurate

        Work with OpenStreetMap.org so that map data is more accurate globally. Given that Microsoft is embracing open standards why not utilize and contribute data to OpenStreetMaps.org and build off and improve a platform which has great global coverage? It also utilizes the community to update maps and correct errors. This could allow Bing Maps to compete with and out-do Google in many respects.

            • Switch years in Bird Eye's View

              I would like to have an option to switch between older and current Bing Maps to see what used to be there. Example: I want to see what was before the construction in year 2007. I cannot see this place anymore in 2017 just because there is no such option. But a month ago I saw that 2007 pictures. Are they lost?

              • bird's eye

                Bring back bird's eye view and include historic imagery. It was an invaluable resource (and the only reason to use bing maps over competitors).

                • Crowd source Bing maps

                  So, I am going to be upfront, Bing Maps is a dump outside the US. But here is the good news, it can be fixed!!!
                  My suggestion is as follows. Take a page out of a book called Foursquare. Let people, curated by yourselves, help out with missing info on Bing Maps. Develop an app which allows people to add streets, shops, bridges, tunnels, restaurants, bakery's and other POI's to Bing Maps.
                  Why would anyone do this? Simple, reward them with Bing Reward points which they only spend in the Microsoft Store, so people even get more invested in the…

                  • add bing map editor

                    Add a map editor (just like google map has one) in bing maps so that we can add places and suggest changes.It will be more authentic to the map since public participation is also included.Any way there will be some corrections since new roads as well as buildings are building day to day.

                      • Bing Maps Support Enterprises Better

                        The support and licensing for Bing Maps are poor at an enterprise level. My company pays a good deal of money for the use of Bing Maps yet we get blocked or surprised by licensing details all the time by the use of the product.

                                  Please make a map key available so that I can find what the color of roads, etc. indicates. The key can be located as a right click option or at a separate url. Just so that if I don't understand something I can track it down.

                                    • Please allow map users to switch off cards by default

                                      The "card" panel at the left obscures a large part of the map and is very annoying.
                                      I NEVER want it, so have to hide it every single time.
                                      Please allow users to switch off by deafult.
                                      Thank you

                                          You've recently updated imagery across the upper Midwest (USA...Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, for starters) and it is cloudy and hazy and verging on completely unusuable. Can you switch back to the previous, sharp clear imagery ASAP? Please!! Roads disappear under clouds (although the labels on top of the clouds are a nice touch).
