Bing Maps is moving beyond the old concept of mapping service, as an atlas and 2D maps. We redefine the role of the mapping service, as an augmented reality platform that represents the world in a multitude of immersive media. We will explore new and research technologies at Bing Maps. From maps and aerial images to oblique views, street imagery, indoor spaces, Photosynth and videos; all smoothly connected in an immersive experience.
