Bing Services provide programmatic access to Bing data by way of application programming interfaces (APIs).
Bing Services include Bing API and Bing Maps.
The Bing API, Version 2 provides developers and site managers with flexible, multiple-protocol access to content SourceTypes such as Image, MobileWeb, News, RelatedSearch, Spell, Video, and Web.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Bing API SourceTypes are transitioning to the Windows Azure Marketplace. You can access these services and relevant documentation here.
The Bing Maps documentation set provides information on the APIs that power Bing Maps, an online mapping service that enables users to search, discover, explore, plan, and share information about specific locations. By using traditional road maps, labeled aerial photo views, low-angle high-resolution aerial photos, and proximity searching capabilities, Bing Maps provides unique opportunities for developers to incorporate both location and local search features into their Web applications.
