Embed Bing Maps Twitter Maps On Your Site

We’ve just released an update to the Twitter Maps application in the Bing Maps Application Gallery. NOW, you can embed our Twitter Maps functionality into your own web site. This means you can be cool by having a Bing Map on your web site, blog, favorite social networking site with the Tweets you care about. And, WOW, it’s super easy. 

 

 

You can do this in four easy steps:

  1. Select the map location either fixed (centered on a specific point) or anywhere (moves the map as the Tweets come in).
  2. Specify the dimensions of your map (height and width).
  3. Add search filters. These will be carried into the embed form if you’ve specified them to filter only tweets that meet your search criteria.
  4. Copy/paste HTML into your web page.

    It seems that Silverlight enabled Map Apps are responsible for providing embed code options.  Why not take the same approach as classic Bing Maps?

    @John – Silverlight gives us more flexibility in the application gallery. You can have AJAX Twitter Maps. There's an option for that in the EMBED feature.

    This is sweet.

    I'm going on a cross country this with my family summer and would love to use this same idea for my family's blog posts. I'd like to overlay the geocoded posts on top of an alrady saved map. Instead of using Twitter I was thinking of using something like Ping.fm so we could handle multiple media types.

    Does anyone have any ideas for an already built app that can handle this?

    Is there a Tumblr version?

    I just found the geotagging via WordPress. I've got my fingers crossed for a quick integration!

    @annie3592 – there's nothing specifically for Tumblr.
