192.com adds Bing Maps to the site

We have just incorporated Bing Maps into our residential and business listings, combining cutting-edge mapping technology with the UK’s ultimate public record. 

192.com’s search results now include Bing Maps, delivering amazing 45-degree bird’s eye-view imagery to residential and business listings where available. These listings will now feature Bing’s 3-D effect, showing buildings in proportion and maintaining clarity from all four compass directions.

In addition to sophisticated Bird’s Eye and Aerial imagery, 192.com’s 4.5 million monthly users will now enjoy a choice of Bing’s five map styles, including ‘Ordnance Survey’, ‘Road’ and ‘Automatic’, which switches to the best map style as you zoom in, and London street map.

For residential listings, 192.com will typically show: where people live, who they live with, how long someone has been a resident of a property, a guide to the resident’s age, the property’s last sale price and an incredible aerial photograph. This type of profile is great for finding someone for the purposes of reuniting friends and family.

192.com’s listings derive from the 2002-2011 Edited Electoral Rolls, Land Registry Records, Births Marriages and Death Indexes, Companies House Director Reports and the Telephone Directory. In addition, 192.com supplies 4.5 million comprehensive business listings, including Director’s details and company credit reports.

Dominic Blackburn, Product Director at 192.com said, “From City to Hamlet, using Bing Maps on 192.com allows us to show where a person or business is, how to get there and the surrounding topography. Bing Maps show a multitude of place names, as opposed to just focusing on road networks, dovetailing superbly with our residential and business data. Britain has never been so comprehensively displayed.” 

Tamsin Todd, Bing Spokesperson said: “By using Bing Maps on 192.com, users can get to know the people or businesses they are looking at in seconds. It’s so exciting when you bring the best of the web together.”
