Getting Started with the 7.0 Map Control
Create a Bing Maps Account and Get a Key
Before you begin developing your application, you need to create a developer account on the Bing Maps Account Center. A Bing Maps Developer Account allows you to create a Bing Maps Key to use in your map application. Getting a key is described in Getting a Bing Maps Key.
|When the Bing Maps AJAX Control 7.0 is loaded with a valid Bing Maps Key, Bing Maps counts sessions. A session begins with the load of the Bing Maps AJAX Control 7.0 into a user’s browser and includes all Bing Maps AJAX Control 7.0 interactions until the browser is closed or the user moves to a different page. Detailed information about Bing Maps usage reports is found in Viewing Bing Maps Usage Reports.|
