In Addition there are some improvements to Bing Maps Explore:

  • Appearance: Cool colours create a more visually appealing backdrop that helps content ‘pop’ on the map, providing clear differentiation for pushpins, labels and red, yellow and green traffic overlays. 
  • New labels: Larger fonts correspond to larger roads, making it easier to identify major streets and throughways. Crisper labels eliminate the need for bolding and less-attractive glows, allowing users to quickly find locations in a relevant format.
  • Improved international coverage: Data updates deliver improved road and street detail across Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Oceania and Asia.
  • Dynamic Labels (beta): This innovative map navigation allows you to quickly zoom to a region or location on the map with just a few clicks, making it easier to identify and explore areas or neighborhoods of a city. Turn on the dynamic labels beta from the map style selector on bing.com/maps/exploreand labels become clickable.

Hi!, I'm a software developer interested in Open Street Map Api, but I would like know if can I introduce an address and then OSM understands it and center the map in that point?

I have gotten use the latitude and longitude to center the map in a given point, but I need use with address as the Ovi Maps.

Great article. Interactive aerial imagery within mapping applications is a huge huge advantage.
