The module offers two content parts: BingMapsLocation and BingMapsArea. As their names indicate, the BingMapsLocation part provides functionality for indicating a Bing Maps place. Each BingMapsLocation can be "attached" to one or more BingMapsArea item. This provides the functionality of visualizing a set of locations as part of a single area.

The following are some other features offered by these content parts:
  • BingMapsArea
    • Interactive way of specifying size of the map when rendering to the customer
    • Interactive way of specifying zoom, center latitude & longitude and map type
  • BingMapsLocation
    • Interactive way of specifying size of the map when rendering to the customer
    • Interactive way of specifying zoom, location latitude & longitude and map type
    • Possibility of using customized icons for the map pins
    • Possibility of hiding geolocation details to the customer on a location by location basis

You can use these content parts and attach them to your custom content types to get Bing Maps support very easily. Check some screenshots below of the display & edit experiences.
