Is there a help document on how to bring BING maps into Bentley Map SS4?
I've added a Video showing the step from generating the Bing Maps Key to creating the Workspace variable and attaching Bing Map using Raster Manager.
With Bing Map terms and conditions, are corporate users allowed to freely print and distribute Bing Map content in drawings?
Is it possible (within terms and conditions) to use one key for all corporate MicroStation users instead of each MicroStation user to create their own Bing Map account?
Bentley went through extensive contract negotiations with Microsoft in order to freely provide Bing Maps content in MicroStation. Including the "bing" logo on all display and print media was part of that agreement. You may freely distribute this content.
We'll have to verify that the Bing Maps Key can be based on the organization, or the individual.
For each organization MSTN user to create a Basic Bing Maps Key (via Bing Maps Dev Center) is really a hassle and there are 125,000 limited free use transactions per key although it is unlikely to go over, assuming MicroStation is an application qualified for free use.
According to Microsoft, this is an individual key. Here are some additional details from the MicroStation Community: Bing Maps in MicroStation
MicroStation CONNECT edition Update 7 includes the capability to use Bing Maps as a Background. Provided that the DGN File includes an active Geographic Coordinate System, Raster Manager is not required. However, the capability to attach Bing Maps in Raster manager is still supported, but you no longer need to use the Bing Maps Key.
The Bentley Map CONNECT edition will also include this capability.
