Explores some of the fun ways to use and interact with maps, mapping data, and geographic information systems. This example uses Microsoft Research map apps (tech preview) as an example. For GIS'ers, this video demonstrates the flexibility and design elements that are emerging in easy-to-use web mapping applications, and that are easily used and understood by anyone. Applications like these are a great way to introduce students to some of the concepts behind GIS, design and cartography.

Couldn't find "Explore Map Apps"  on the bottom left side of your screen. :( Had the feature gone or how can i reach it?

+Vladimir Kobzev Hi Vladimir - these features do change from time to time - they're likely still somewhere but might take a little digging to find.  After a quick search I'm wondering if some of this functionality now is available under the "apps" in Windows 8.1 - if I find a better reference I'll post it here!

does this still work in 2014?

Hi EmpressCrane: The map apps are still there - go to Bing Maps, then click on "Explore Map Apps" on the bottom left side of your screen. Click on "Destination Maps (tech preview)". As this feature is a "preview", it does appear it may periodically become unavailable. Good luck!

I can't find the map apps any more.
