Simple preview of Bing map from Bing URL (long or short) RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my website it is possible for users to post Bing map links (from the 'share' option on the Bing website UI) and it saves them and links to them from the page.

    Is it possible/easy to create a simple preview of that map, kind of a map 'thumbnail' that shows a smaller, simple map centered on the single location and with a single pintpoint on the center?

    I'd like to do this directly from the URL they have supplied, but it seems I'd have to process it in someway to get the coordinates out of the URL?
