Ability to capture bing satellite map image and store it using my program RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Currently I am showing Bing Satellite map in my Asp.Net application using lat, long coordinates.

    I would like to add a command button to the bing maps, which will allow the user to save the satellite map as an image into the database.

    How I can capture the bingmaps screen and save it as an image?

    Thank you

  • Saving the maps in a database is not allowed according to the terms of use for the service. What you can do is save the map view information (zoom, center point) and use that to request the image as needed in the future.

  • Thanks Ricky,

    Is capturing the screen shots of Bing satellite map imagery and saving them onto local pc manually not allowed too?

  • It depends on what the image will be used for. If you are going to include it in a report, email or print it then this would be allowed under the Bing Maps Print rights:

    Note that there are a number of limitations and restrictions documented in there.
