    @umapathyxp – We'll get there at some point. Sri Lanka isn't high up on the ranking, but we'll definately get coverage there at some point.

    I am from Sri Lanka. Here we are struggling with out proper aerial map. Civil war came to an end last year. Lot of humanitarian deminig is ongoing in the Northern Sri Lanka. Some of the development activities are alteady started and I shall be thankful if Bing can assist on this. Having an areal imagery will definitely help us to identify the objects and to plan accordingly.

    Hey great! Do you have any idea when an update to Buenos Aires imagery might be released? Thanks!

    When are you guys planning to update maps for India? How can you guys not focus on 1.2 billion people living there?! Maps of India on Bing are poor and terrible to say the least!
