Microsoft Garage Project Maps SDK Brings 3D Maps to Mixed Reality

Say hello to Maps SDK, a Microsoft Garage project! This latest release brings all the cool things about 3D maps to Unity developers. As a map control for Unity, Maps SDK makes it possible to fold Bing Maps’ 3D world data into Unity-based, mixed reality experiences. This control is drag-and-drop and provides an off-the-shelf 3D map, customizable controls, along with the building blocks for creative mixed reality map experiences.
