Bing Maps (Virtual Earth) Tiles

The Export Bing Maps (Virtual Earth) Tiles command allows the user to export any loaded data to JPG or PNG files tiled in the configuration required for display in using the Microsoft Bing Maps (Virtual Earth) interface. This command will create both the image tiles and a sample HTML file for displaying the data with the Bing Maps (Virtual Earth) interface. You can just load the HTML file into your web browser to view the data once the export is over. You can also customize the HTML file however you need to.

When you select the command, the Bing Maps Export Options dialog (below) appears allowing you to setup the export.

This dialog allows you to specify the display name of the map set in your web browser, the zoom level setup, the format of the imagery, specify a custom tile naming scheme, and some additional options. There is also an Export Bounds panel which allows the user to set up the portion of the loaded data they wish to export.

Note: Users without a permanent registration key that export Virtual Earth tiles will get a large diagonal DEMO symbol across the image. Registered users will not see that symbol on their output.
