Styling Bing Maps - the map tiles RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am using third party library (Openlayers) to view Bing Maps Successfully. 

    For a very specific need, I need the ability to pass SLD (Style Layer descriptors) to style bing maps, much like https://mapstyle.withgoogle.com. 

    I am unable to work out how to do this/ or whether this is supported. Other items I found and did not help:

    • This link https://www.bing.com/maps/embed/Customize.aspx# provides very simplistic styling help, but not sure if this can be enhanced.. perhaps I haven't figured out completely, then point me in the right direction..
    • Searching through the history here, it appears it is not supported: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/fec8ef97-f831-451e-80e2-5515049ef142/bing-map-style-on-store-app?forum=bingmapswindows8

    I hope I am wrong, please could you clarify?

    Thanks and Regards,

  • Bing Maps currently doesn't support custom map styles yet...try again in a month. Not, these forums are for Bing Maps, not open layers. Open layer specific questions should go to open layers.
