Today the Bing team released the WorldWide Telescope mapping application for Bing Maps. Originally demoed at TED in February by Blaise Aguera y Arcas, the new application is the latest release supporting Bing’s Spatial Search vision. Microsoft’s vision for Spatial Search stems from the need to reunite all of the different information scattered across the web back to a physical environment as it makes sense for making decisions in the real world.

The application allows people to literally look up at the virtual sky in Bing Maps and see constellations and stars as they exist in real-life. Now people can see the sky as it appears at anytime – in real-time.

To access the WorldWide Telescope application:
  • Go to: www.bing.com/maps/explore
  • Click on Map Apps (bottom of the left-hand rail, below the explore section)
  • Select the WorldWide Telescope App
  • (note: you need to have Silverlight installed)


For more information on the application please visit the Bing blog.
