Today at Where2.0 in San Jose, CA Blaise Aguera y Arcas, architect of Bing Maps took the stage to provide an update on Microsoft’s progress with Bing Maps. He announced the following:
- Bing Maps World Tour App Launch: Just about every month, Bing Maps gets a makeover in the form of new map imagery for locations worldwide. The World Tour map app brings these updates to life using the Bing Map Apps framework, Silverlight and Azure.
- Bing Maps Oodle App Launch: Oodle.com, one of the fastest growing classifieds services is creating an app that will map rental housing on Bing Maps which will be available today. The Oodle Rentals app will pull-in Oodle data, allowing users to look at various rental housing available from Oodle.com.
