Aerial imagery forms the basis of today’s web mapping, and the history of aerial imagery…
For business, government & research applications that make use of aerial imagery, it’s often critically important to have new Bing Maps imagery for the most accurate representations of an area. Customers asked, and the Bing Maps team listened: Bing Maps is investing heavily in expanding and refreshing their aerial imagery, including the introduction of brand, new 30cm imagery for 42 U.S. cities.
MapSavvy Now Offers An Additional Option: New Bing Maps Imagery from 2019
As a result of updates from Bing Maps, MapSavvy now offers multiple options for aerial imagery, including:
• Historic imagery (older high-resolution imagery important for “before” comparisons);
• Imagery with multiple layer options (basic imagery, imagery with roads & imagery with key landmarks labeled)
• New 2019 imagery (30cm aerial imagery taken in 2019 for 42 US cities, with more coming on line throughout 2019).
New Bing Maps Imagery Updates To Include 166K Square Kilometers of Updates Images
The Bing Maps team is hard at work to bring 166,000 square kilometers of refreshed, high-resolution imagery on line by the end of summer 2019. After that, they’ll be releasing between 8,000-13,000 square kilometers of updated aerial imagery every week for the rest of 2019, and into 2020.
It’s no surprise that the new, refreshed Bing Maps imagery being introduced starts with metropolitan areas and densely populated areas.
