Bing Maps

Access to maps from Microsoft's Bing Maps service is obtained through a third-party service provided by OnTerra.  The image obtained from Bing Maps will automatically be georeferenced to either UTM or US State Plane coordinates.  The destination coordinate system and zone is selected from the View Options dialog.  Click here to view a training video on Bing Maps in EnviroInsite.
