In December, we launched the Bing Maps Preview app on Windows 8.1, introducing a new way to explore the world in a touch-friendly way. We’ve been flying, driving and processing since then and have just added 15 more 3D cities to the list we launched with.
With the help of world builders from the video game industry, expert photogrammetrists, high definition aerial cameras and a massive data pipeline crunching petabytes of imagery, we are delivering a more natural way to experience our planet. Touch it, tilt it, tap it or turn it to immerse yourself and experience maps in new ways.
Taking advantage of our advanced geometry engine, street labels and markers dynamically adapt to your vantage point. So as you traverse the landscape the map adapts to how your eye sees the 3D space.
You can now explore 360-degree views of these new cities:
- Montgomery, AL
- Bakersfield, CA
- Sacramento, CA
- San Francisco, CA
- Gainesville, FL
- Tallahassee, FL
- Columbus, GA
- Baton Rouge, LA
- Shreveport, LA
- Gulport, MS
- Seattle, WA
