This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
If you’re in the UK and go to Bing Maps via Bing.com/maps you will get redirected to Multimap.com…or, at least you would’ve until now. Going to Bing Maps will take you to the new Bing Maps experience in the UK. We’ve introduced a slough a features just for the UK market (and some shared with the US market). Also, for those who still want the Multimap.com experience you can still access it directly via Multimap.com; however, over the next few weeks you will be asked if you’d like try the new Bing Maps experience instead – I’d advise you try it. Once you go Bing, you never go…wait. Never mind. Check out the features.

If you're not in the UK and want see how good they have it, check out http://www.bing.com/maps/?mkt=en-uk. More to come…also check out the Bing Search Blog for more news about Bing in the UK.

Nice tube map, but given that it says it is "New", it's a surprise it doesn't include the newest London tube line - the "Overground". Previously called the East London Line, it was closed for extension for a couple of years but reopened in May 2010. The old stations are shown when the tube map is active, however there is no line connecting them, and the extension stations are not marked as tube stations. Some people don't count most of the Overground network as part of the tube, but if this is your thinking, you should really remove the tube stations.
