New Bing imagery

Posted by naoliv on 20 August 2014 in English (English)

Finally Bing has updated some old imagery here (from 10~12 years ago).
Unfortunatelly the new images are just a big and nice void: http://binged.it/YBiZVe

"Thank you", Bing.

I think that overall, it's a positive thing for filling in missing gaps in the map.

Sorry to see there's a dark spot in your map. On the bright side, there are lots of new spots in Africa that can be traced out.

You'd think that they would have spoted the hole during QA and kept the old imagery for it :/

They probably still have the old imagery somewhere, it's worth a try alerting them about the regression (sorry, no idea who to contact for this).
