“Destination Maps” for Your Holiday / New Year’s Parties

Over the next few weeks, there will be many holiday and New Year’s parties across the globe as we spend time with our families and welcome in 2011. I wanted to briefly re-visit a previously released Map App that is very timely for this time of the year – “Destination Maps”. When planning your party, this Map App lets you create custom mini-maps that you can save, print, or share via URL.

These maps can either help people who don’t know your location very well or just be a fun addition to a party invitation. And if you’re not having a party anytime soon, check it out anyways! You can choose from 4 different map styles, including the Treasure Map style as seen in the below example. Please note that the app takes between 2 and 4 minutes to generate the map.

On behalf of everyone at Bing Maps, have a happy holiday and a great final few weeks in 2010. Enjoy!
