Bing Venue Maps Goes International Adding Thousands of Shopping Malls

Whether you live in Poland or Spain, Russia or Belgium, or pretty much anywhere in-between, you will now be able to explore your local shopping mall through Bing maps - helping you locate the stores you are looking for, find the closest services and facilities like restrooms and cash machines, and even browse their directories.

Through Microsoft’s partnership with Nokia, Bing Maps just boosted its Venue Map coverage in the US and internationally expanding the experience to more than 2,700 Venue Maps across the world. This update is primarily focused on shopping malls across North America, Europe, and Asia.

All new Venue Maps are now available through www.bing.com/maps and, in the US and UK, are also available on Windows Phone Maps (7.5), m.bing.com/maps, and the Bing app for iPhone.

Simply zoom in over your favorite mall to enter the experience. You can also browse all the available Venue Maps and countries at www.bing.com/maps/venues.

Here are a few examples:

  • It's great! Good works :-)

  • Ok looks great. How do I add local (Sri Lanka) mall information to that? is it possible or do I need to wait? Can some one please let me know. Thanks in advance.

  • If bing is now international why can I not find a town in Ontario Canada called Hillsburgh I can find in Google very easley but it looks like Facebook uses Bing I have tried adding to bing but very complicated.

  • Geocoding in Canada was recently updated. Hillsburgh, Ontario can now be easily found.
