Thoughts, about stuff

Multimap is moving to Bing

with one comment

In December 2007 Microsoft purchased Multimap, a leading mapping website in the UK. Pretty soon after that Multimap started using Live Search Maps and now of course Multimap uses Bing Maps.

My wife has for a long time been a very keen Multimap user and as she was browsing the site earlier today I noticed over her shoulder the following ad:

I took a look myself and discovered that clicking on the link takes you through to http://www.multimapismoving.co.uk/ which is a rather enjoyable little site featuring a video explaining that Multimap is moving lock, stock and barrel to Bing Maps:

The site also proclaims:

Anyone who’s moved home knows that it’s a bitter sweet experience.

After many happy years at Multimap.com the time has come to move on and build a better maps experience with Bing.com. Bing Maps is a more visual experience that makes location based tasks easier, and we are excited about the new features that will be launching over the coming months on bing.com/maps.

In short if you are a Multimap user expect, in the not too distant future, to start getting redirected Bing Maps.

  1. Hmm. very nice Jamie but a little bit too narrow in content for this poor sighted Granny and the text is a bit small. ( still picking and piking you’ll notice! I like my blogs nice and wide with nice big fonts that are easy to read. Speaking of which you blog, we have been rather ahead in the UK I always felt, having Multimap and I am glad that they are amalgamating with Bing.
