Bing 3D Maps

Just few hours of after the announcement from Nokia that HERE Maps will be released for all Windows 8 devices, Bing team has announced that they have added 15 new 3D cities to Bing Maps preview app in Windows Store.

 We’ve been flying, driving and processing since then and have just added 15 more 3D cities to the list we launched with. With the help of world builders from the video game industry, expert photogrammetrists, high definition aerial cameras and a massive data pipeline crunching petabytes of imagery, we are delivering a more natural way to experience our planet.  Touch it, tilt it, tap it or turn it to immerse yourself and experience maps in new ways.

Taking advantage of our advanced geometry engine, street labels and markers dynamically adapt to your vantage point.  So as you traverse the landscape the map adapts to how your eye sees the 3D space.

These are the newly added 3D cities,

Germany

  • Duisburg
  • Dresden

  • Murcia

United States

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Gainesville, FL

You can find all of the cities currently available in 3D at the 3D Cities website and enjoy the experience by downloading the the Preview app at the Windows Store.
