Bing Maps - Static map RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to get a static map image using Bing Map REST API. But it is a little bit different from the Map component itself. The level of details is not exactly the same. Even using the same zoom level as the zoom level of the Map

    Is there a way to get the exact same image as saw in Map component?

  • The Windows Store Native control (XAML) is a new control that is completely different from the rest of the Bing Maps API's. The native control overlays the label son the client side and the labels do move around. The rest of the map controls have the labels embedded directly into the map images. The REST imagery service is based on these embedded label maps. This results in the REST image looking all the other map controls other than the native Windows Store one. There is no way to get the REST service to look like the native control.
