Bing Maps Piracy Watch Reveals Incidents Worldwide.

Quote:
A new Bing Maps application is designed to offer an overall perspective over piracy incidents worldwide. Bing Maps Piracy Watch allows users to get an overview of pirate attacks around the world, but also additional information on specific cases. Built on top of Microsoft’s mapping, location and search platform, the app uses a combination of visual data, with pushpins illustrating the specific location of an attack, but it is also set up to deliver additional details related to each incident, through a popup box.

“Users have the ability to click any of the pushpins to get more information about the respective incident – specifically, the date of the incident, the type of ship that was victimized, the aggressor, and a short description of the incident which includes the location of the incident. The left panel provides additional ways to sort the data – by date, victim type or aggressor type,” Chris Pendleton, the Bing Maps technical evangelist for Microsoft, revealed.

Piracy is alive and well! Most of the folks that I know with boats that go off shore to the Caribbean are armed.

Bing 3D maps won't install
The installation simply stops apparently before the download is completed. Only references I can find talk about .NET Framework and WIC, but in the context of XP. Aren't those those things included in Windows 7 Ultimate?
