Bing Maps 3D WebGL RRS feed

  • Question

  • I believe it was mentioned at Build that Bing Maps would get 3D features with WebGL. I have an app I want to build and I really to use 3D pictures. Is there any word on when this will be released if it's still in planning at all?

  • This was never announced at the Build conference. Someone who attended the conference took the information from two completely separate sessions and made an assumption then wrote a blog post that ended up getting sent around. That actual announcements where

    1) 3D Maps are coming back to the Native Bing Maps Windows Store (We had 3D maps in the past through our old v6.3 control, it was an ActiveX API). This new 3D API is completely new. I don't believe the release data was announced but I'd say it's in the not too distant future.

    2) IE 11 will support WebGL. The Bing Maps Web API may start implementing this in the future.

    Notice how these announcements are about complete different platforms/API's.
