Bing Maps Imagery Release, November 2009

A bit of an early surprise for my friends who are at Tech Ed Europe 2009 with me. In this special drop of imagery for Bing Maps we focus on, guess where…Europe! And, mostly Eastern Europe. Yesterday, while at Tech Ed Europe, I met with journalists from Norway, UK, Czech Republic, Spain, Croatia, Russia and Austria and most of them asked when we’ll have better imagery / photography in their respective countries. Well, at least I can make a few of them happy. Below, you’ll find the information for this release…all 178,720 square kilometers of it.

And, as always, check out the full details on the Bing Maps World Tour Application.

  • Bulgaria (1,225 sq. km)
  • Czech Republic (10,808 sq. km)


  • Estonia (1,418 sq. km)
  • Hungary (23,840 sq. km)
  • Latvia (12,763 sq. km)

    @Jimgia – Latin America is schedule, but I can't release timelines due to confidentiality.

    @Arjan – Do you mean something in the world tour or is it specific to the release (which didn't include a vector data update.

  6. arjan

    Chris, do you know if there is also an overview of updates of vector data?

  7. jimgia
