The Virtual Earth Team Wants Your Feedback


We’ve set up a few surveys to get a better understand of what it is you actually want out of a mapping platform; or, at least from our mapping platform. Better route data? Higher resolution imagery? More data layers? Tell us your thoughts. There are a three different surveys established for providing your feedback:


1. Enterprise Customer w/ Production Access – If you are an existing Virtual Earth or MapPoint Web Service customer with a license you’ll want to fill out this survey. At the end of the survey, as a token of appreciation, you will be offered a $25 gift certificate from Hallmark Insights. Or you can choose to have us donate $25 to International Services of American Red Cross on your behalf.


2. Public Sector Customer – If you work in the public sector and use or want to use Virtual Earth or MapPoint Web Service, you’ll want to fill out this survey. At the end of the survey, as a token of appreciation, we will donate $10 to International Services of American Red Cross on your behalf.


3. Evaluation Customer – If you are just evaluating Virtual Earth or MapPoint Web Service, you’ll want to fill out this survey. The first 500 respondents who are eligible for the gift certificate or donation.


So, give us what you got. Whether you love us or hate us, I know you’ve got something to say so bring it!

    Chris,

    Your #3 link "Evaluation Customer" is not active, guessing it is still a placeholder?

    Hi

    Please could someone from Microsoft explain why when a map is set to a location in the UK and I try and find the postcode: GL51 9EJ

    I get these results:

    G5L 9E9 (postal code), Canada

    G5L 1E9 (postal code), Canada

    Surely if the map is focused on the UK, you should lookup UK postcodes?

    This after all was the original behaviour a while back.

    Why should the website visitors have to workout to add UK on the end: ‘GL51 9EJ, UK’

    Are there any plans to introduce a find location default country property or find location hint property? or to even fix this issue?

    Many thanks

    I went to maps.live.com and entered "GL51 9EJ" and the map recentered to somewhere near Cheltenham, England – not Canada. Is this not correct?
