Bing equivalent to Google Maps Data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Google has Maps Data API where you can upload programmatically a list of placemarkers, and then download them when you need them, sorted geographically (closest to me for example) so I can show what's close on a local map. Does Bing have an equivalent?

  • Actually Microsoft has had this for a long time. They orginally created this for there MapPoint Web Service product but it regularly used with Bing Maps. There is site called the Customer service Site were you can upload xml, delimited, and excel files. You can then use MapPoint to retrieve this data and import it into Bing Maps. Here is an article on how to set this up: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc316940.aspx Aside from searching for locations by distance you can also search for locations along a route, properties, or id.
