The following wikipedia page says that 3d mode in bing maps was discontinued


Whats the reason for that? Is there any official announcement or page regarding this from Microsoft?


It was abandoned in favor of "Bird's eye everywhere."


A good review of bings capability is here: http://www.georelated.com/2012/02/cloud-web-map-api-services-reviewed_19.html

Bing Maps 3d was finally retired in dec 2011 because users wanted more birds eye instead.
