Bing Maps SDK Public Preview for Android and iOS Launches Today

We are excited to announce that the Bing Maps SDK for Android and iOS is now available for public preview.

Experience the power of Bing Maps on mobile! Bing Maps SDK for Android and iOS features new controls powered by a full vector 3D map engine with a number of standard mapping capabilities running with native performance. Aside from the standard features you would expect from a map control, we are bringing in the same 3D Native support you know from our Windows UWP control. Add dimension to both road and aerial views with worldwide 3D elevation data (via our Digital Elevation Model). In addition, add context to road maps with our symbolic 3D buildings. Of course, if 3D is not needed for your scenario, we support a standard Web Mercator projection.

With the new Bing Maps controls for Android and iOS, mobile now compliments our multiplatform ecosystem. Create maps with similar look and feel across Web, Windows, and Mobile. When your product requires a unique look and feel, it’s simple to go over to the Maps Style Sheet Editor and create a personalized map style. This personalization is easily integrated into all our supported platforms and helps you deliver a consistent user experience.
