  1. Limited polygon to static map.

    So it will be possible to have "images" to maps instead of n instances of the client.

    • Streetside history

      Dear Community,
      People who use Google Street View can take a look at the history of the captures, e.g there were pictures taken in Dec 2009 and Nov 2016. Is it possible to view such a history on Bing Maps?
      Thank you very much for your help.

      • Share map collections and collaborate on map collections

        No idea why this isn't already a feature. This would be a huge help to getting people to use bing maps.

        If I have a collection, I should be able to make my collection public and share it with others. I should be able to give others access to updating that collection or even have the ability to make it public. I should have the ability to moderate new entries on the collection as the owner.

        Scenario 1: Planning a trip with friends to Paris
        Create a collection, share it with your friends so you can all tag places you…

          Thank you for your passion Bing Maps. We like this suggestion and will be evaluating options.

          In the meantime, a Collection can be shared to Social Media and via email. Go to My Places, select share, and then select the Collections you wish to share.

          Карты Bing, к сожалению пока работают в Английской локализации Office 365 (версии 2013 и 2016), прошу сообщить, когда будет решена эта проблема в Русской локализации Office 365.

          • In reference to the weather map on Accuweather the siderds are not visible only names

            It used to be fine. Something has changed. It is not as nice as it once was. Could the lines to made a little lighter for visibility sake.

            • Allow users to scroll past embedded maps on touch devices (like Google Maps "cooperative" mode)

              Historically, scrolling on pages with embedded maps on touch devices has caused UX issues when the users gets "stuck" on the maps since all touch swipe events are captured by the map (for panning).

              Google Maps have added a "cooperative" touch mode that mitigates this by separating page interactions (one finger) from map interactions (two fingers).
              https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/interaction

              We have a project now for a multinational client that is leaning towards switching from Bing Maps to Google Maps for this very reason.

              Does Bing Maps address this issue somehow as well?
              Is there a plan to address it in the future?

              • Bing Maps add-on does not work in the Russian version of Excel

                Unfortunately, the Bing Maps add-on for Office 365 only works in the English version at the moment. (This applies to Office Excel 2013 and 2016). When will this issue be fixed in the Russian version of Office 365?

                  Collections seem to appear from last created to first...
                  It will be convenient to have the possibility to manually arrange them.

                  • Fix bug where removed/deleted favorite locations keep re-adding themselves

                    I have submitted feedback on this several times and there is no progress. I have 3 devices on which I use Microsoft maps (all running versions of Windows 10 (Lumia Icon, Surface Pro 4, and Dell Desktop). No matter how many times I delete favorites, and no matter from which device I delete favorites, they always end up re-adding themselves to my favorite locations list.

                    Fix it, please.

                    • How about a PAUSE button for a trip ?

                      Too often a trip starts and something unplanned happens. Someone needs medication or bathroom break or you find you don't really have enough gas for the trip. Yet the trip voice keeps yammering on as if no pause is needed. It then tries to remap the trip as the driver tries to locate a gas station, drug store, etc. using up device battery and unnecessary processing of trip data. A simple PAUSE program would be helpful here. A 'Mute' button would also be helpful while people in a vehicle are trying to sort out the interruption of the drive.

                      • Don't treat well-defined areas as points

                        When searching for e.g. "Texas, United States", the result is a point roughly in the middle of the state of Texas.
                        https://binged.it/2qxmuKL

                        The same search on google maps highlights the state area (and shows some information in a sidebar).
                        https://goo.gl/maps/keqKn7gEuAD2

                        It would be great if know states/provinces/countries etc. could be treated as areas rather than simple points. This also means that geocode/autosuggest should return different search results for areas and places. This should only apply when there are well defined borders such as countries, states, counties, provinces etc. but not cities.

                        As a bonus, it would be great if a…

                              Hi,

                              It could be nice to click on bus/train/subway icon to get the itinerary and hours of arrival/departure + link to website/ticket reservation.

                              For the moment there is some bus icons, but you can't get info from there.

                              Same for the maps app on Windows 10.

                              • Wheelchair-friendly transit directions

                                I know that Bing gives several options for transit directions (fewer transfers, less walking, etc.), but has Bing ever considered adding a "wheelchair-friendly" option for its transit directions? Bing doesn't seem to have a "wheelchair-friendly" option for its transit directions, but many people would be well-served by having wheelchair-friendly transit directions.

                                If Bing hasn't thought of this, I don't take offense, as I didn't think of this until just a couple of weeks before I published a blog post on the matter https://blindinjusticeblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/23/the-ableism-of-internet-map-directions/). But I hope that Bing thinks about the issue going forward, and makes an option for…

                                • Make County Names Larger and viewable at 2 Mile level for Family Tree Maker users

                                  Make County Names Larger and viewable at 2 Mile level for genealogists that use Family Tree Maker please.

                                  Counties are really important to genealogists. I would like to be able to see County Names on the Map better - all caps and bright red would be great. Being able to place a city in the correct county is important because many times the same city appears in 2 different counties in the same state.
                                  Right now I can make out dashed county lines when zoomed at 2 miles but not the County Name which would be really helpful. Then, if…

                                  • Add IANA Time Zone Features

                                    I would love it if geocoding requests also included the IANA Time Zone for retrieved locations.

                                    Also, it would be great if BING offered an endpoint similar to the Google Time Zone APIs. This endpoint takes lat/lon and obtains the IANA Time Zone for that specific point: https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/timezone/json?location=49.8949522,-97.137847&timestamp=1331161200

                                    Time Zone information should include exactly what Google offers:

                                    dstOffset: 0,
                                    rawOffset: -21600,
                                    timeZoneId: "America/Winnipeg",
                                    timeZoneName: "Central Standard Time"

                                    • Unique ID's for Bing Maps locations

                                      Hello,

                                      I've played around with the Bing Maps API for a bit, and it is beginning to dawn on me that there simply is no unique ID associated with Locations there, is there? I want to associate some of my own meta-information to certain locations I look up via your REST API, yet how can I conceptually synchronize my entities with yours (on my end)? For that I would need a way of uniquely referring to any Location I pull from the API. This seems to be a shockingly straightforward idea, and yes, Google does implement it: https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/place-id Am I…
