Actuality of Bing Maps Data in Silverlight Control RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    i have to solve a problem with an embedded Bing Maps PlugIn (Silverlight). Exactly said, there are two problems:

    - the known Bird's Eye Projection-Problem; i solved this by using a webservice to load altitude-data for calibrating the bird's eye view

    - the plugin shows different map versions as the website on bing.com. I did not found any setting to solve that. Target is to have the same data displayed as on the Bing Website

     

    Any ideas?

    Thanks & Greetings from Germany

  • The issue you are seeing is due to how Birdseye imagery is rendered. There are several "scenes" which are overlapped that make up the birdseye tile layer. It is common when two scenes overlap for one to show up and not the other. Sometimes if you pan a bit you will be able to get it to switch to the other scene. That said, the Birdseye functionality in the Silverlight control is in beta. This would not be considered a bug as this control is not supported.

  • Are you using a Bing Maps key to authenicate your map? Also, the bing.com site sometimes has the latest imagery which might not be rolled out to the map control. Try comparing to the Bing Maps Interactive SDK: http://www.bingmapsportal.com/ISDK/AjaxV7

    Hi and thanks for your answer. Yes, a regular and valid key is used for authentification of the silverlight control.

    I will compare it with the map you've linked to - report follows tomorrow.

  • Here i am :)

    I tried a specific adress in Munich, Germany. Results:

    Bing Maps (Ajax) and Bing.com are showing the same data. Silverlight plugIn's data are obsolete. Correct that there is on developer's side no way to fix that?

  • Can you provide an actual coordinate. I just checked Munich and I'm seeing the exact same aerial imagery in both map controls. Or is the difference with the Birdseye imagery?

    Correct, with the Birdseye imagery. Check the "Ehrengutstraße" in Munich for example.
