I work for a solar panel company and my boss wants me to add a map to show all the solar panels we have installed. Basically he wants a map of the UK with about 600 pushpins in the map saying where we did the installation and how much kilowatts that solar installation produces. I did a test run using the my places feature in bing maps but when I embed it into the webpage it does not show the pushpins. What am I doing wrong?

I would suggest converting your data into an XML file using GeoRSS format and then using the GeoRSS module for Bing Maps to load the data on your web page. You can find the GeoRSS module and code samples for Bing Maps here: http://bingmapsv7modules.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=GeoRSS%20Plugin

I have the same problem as iballa: I created a "My Places" map with several pushpins, but when I embed it in a webpage, the pushpins don't show up.
Richard, are you saying that there's no way to do this using the "consumer" version of Bing Maps?
