  • As stated in the migration guides for Bing Maps V6 and V7 to V8, Venue maps have been deprecated. As interesting as this module was, very few developers used it. A large amount of work is required to maintain the data behind this module and since it isn’t being used very much, it has been deprecated so that the Bing Maps team can focus on features that are a higher priority to developers.

    I think you are only the first or second person to ask about them since V8 was released.

    That said, some internal Microsoft teams have expressed interest in using venue maps and we are looking into possibly bringing them back, however we don't have a timeline for this.
