What is Streetside?
Street level imagery (a.k.a. Streetside) enables map users to experience Bing Maps from street level. Streetside will supplement maps, directions and local search. Imagery is collected using a 360 degree camera mounted on an automobile. We drive public roads and other areas open to the public (e.g., parking lots), with our main focus on streets with businesses and points of public interest.
To see Streetside in action, visit the Bing Maps beta site.
Bing Maps Silverlight Control developers can get started with the files and documentation related to the beta Streetside imagery mode by visiting Microsoft Connect.
Streetside imagery is also available when you develop a map app using the Bing Map App SDK.
