Bing Maps Getting 3D Imagery in Windows 8.1

If you like the Flyover feature in Apple Maps that lets you see a cityscape in 3D or Google Maps' similar graphics, that same functionality is coming to the Bing Maps app in Windows 8.1.Bing-3d
The Maps app in Windows 8, powered by Bing, will get 3D imagery when it becomes available in the fall, Microsoft corporate vice president Gurdeep Singh Pall announced at the company's Build 2013 conference on Wednesday.
In a demo, Pall showed some Flyover-type renderings with the new Bing Maps. However, the new app will be absent from the current preview version of Windows 8.1, which developers will be able to download today.

Although 3D imagery brings Bing Maps on par with its primary competitors, Apple and Google, the outpouring of criticism toward Apple Maps showed that users tend to value accuracy and informational features rather than impressive graphics.
