Embed Bing Maps in an IFRAME

A fellow colleague here at Infusion, Ricky Brundritt MVP, has just pointed me in the direction of a cool Bing Services msdn article regarding how to embed Bing Maps in an IFRAME. This however requires no custom html or aspx page, you can just use a fairly simple url and additionally pass a selection of query parameters to gain some great functionality like push pins, etc…

Another great thing about this is that you do not see any Bing Maps chrome/borders/adverts, it is just the Map and associated controls. Have a look at this example which will load into a new browser window.

Take a look and enjoy.
