Bing Maps offers an iOS SDK to develop applications in Objective C within Xcode. Users can note that the iOS map control is supported by Bing's road. It offers aerial and hybrid map styles. It can also access a user's location as long as the phone's GPS is on. What makes this kit valuable is its capacity to use the Bing Maps REST Service that includes geocoding and routing to build a mapping application. This idea serves to help coordinate the Bing Maps Control with Bing Maps services. Besides using the iOS SDK, developers are invited to use the Bing Maps SDK for Windows Phone and the SDK for Android. These services might provide a more complete development experience to create apps associated with geocoding, routing, and mapping services.
A more interactive experience can help developers create engaging applications. This is the case of Bing Maps V7 Interactive SDK in AJAX, that presents alternatives to choose a virtual user experience. The SDK allows one to create maps with clickable logos, search boxes, and navigation bars. Users also can create maps with view selections such as bird's eye view, aerial view, and initial zoom. In addition to these preferences, users can access modules with traffic, directions, venue maps, navigation, search, and spatial data services.
