Third party point of interest locations on bing mapp RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can I put third party point of interest location data on a Bing map in a Windows Store app?  Also, is there a Bing Map API that includes photos, reviews or any other information about a point of interest other than just the name and the address?

  • Yes, you can add 3rd party point of interest data to Bing Maps in a Windows Store app, assuming you have the rights to use the data. Bing Maps does not expose an API to get photo's and reviews for points of interest. Typically this type of data is integrated into custom Bing Maps apps using services from companies like Yelp.
