Had not used Bing Maps for some time. With discussion on another post about finding coordinates. I ran across this information that may be of use to some of our members. Plan to start using it more myself now that I see its advantage.
On Bing Maps http://www.bing.com/mapspreview . Once you search a address the coordinates will show under the address on the left side. To refine the location right click on the map to show new coordinates.
To find a location without an address, just right-click anywhere on the map and it displays the coordinates automatically on the bottom of the selection list.
I've tried Bing, but I could not find a way to save the coordinates other than writing them down with pencil and paper.
Am I missing something?
Address search will show them on the left side of screen that you can copy and paste. To get coordinates from clicking on the map.Right click and select add pushpin.The coordinates will show on left of the screen that you can copy and paste.If a address is there it will also show.
I'm guessing you need to sign-in to Bing (Microsoft Account) to use a pushpin, or have the coordinates show on the left.
Oh well. Thanks anyway.
I believe you are right about that. When I sign in for my Microsoft email account it opens up all the accounts for me. So I didn't pay attention to that.So not a problem on my end. If you use the My maps feature on Google or Bing it requires sign in.
