Bing Maps for Windows Store apps combine the power of Windows 8 and Bing™ Maps to provide an enhanced mapping experience for Windows Store apps. Developers can use this Bing Maps control to incorporate the latest road maps, aerial views, and low-angle high-resolution images into a Windows Store app. Also take a look at the free eBook on creating Location Intelligent Windows Store apps here.

This training kit consists of a power point slide deck which gives an overview of how to create a Windows Store App that uses Bing Maps.
