bing Maps Package
This package allows you to integrate Microsoft™ bing Maps into
your Umbraco implementations. In order to use this package
you will need to register for an API key with Microsoft at https://www.bingmapsportal.com/.
Two macros are provided for inserting maps within your content
based on the level of functionality and display configuration
needed within the map.
Bing Map (Basic)
This macro provides the ability to display a map location and
surrounding businesses with a specified keyword. A marker
will be displayed for each location returned from the search.
Bing Map (Advanced)
This macro provides the ability to display multiple location
searches and targeted points within a single map. A single
parameter is required which allows you to select a content node
containing the map definition information.
The map, place and search information are stored in content
nodes of type bing Map, bing Map Place and bing Map Search.
The bing Map nodes store display information for the map, while the
bing Map Place and Search, child nodes of the bing map, store
location information or search keywords for the pushpins.
The map definition nodes do not display as content pages and are
not intended to be viewed directly. The macro references the
selected node specified in the parameters for information about the
map and the places to display.
You will need to define your bing Map node prior to inserting
the macro onto one of your existing content nodes. By default
you can create bing Map nodes at the root of your website. To
store your bing Map nodes under the page where you are displaying
the macro, you will need to check the 'bing Map' document type from
the structure tab of your own document type.
Each map is self contained and therefore you can insert multiple
maps (Advanced or Basic) within a single RichTextEditor or
When using the search capabilities of this package, please be
aware that Microsoft's search results for certain locations do not
always return results for even common words.
