    The birds eye view is available in places where it is not avaialbel through the Telerik BingProvider. For example, while I can view Bird Eye View of Toronto CN Tower when I go through http://bing.com/maps, Bird View button is disabled in the Telerik Bing Map samples. Is thsi by design?

    Hello Harminder Riarh,

    The Bird Eye button is enabled when the right zoom level (19 or 20) is selected.

    My question is how can Bing provides this on Zoom Levels < 19 and RadMap can not. If RadMap is based on Bing Maps, it should be ble to provide teh same images that Bing Maps uses. Please see the attached image which is a snapshot I took with Bing Maps 3D. Can I get this kind of view in RadMap?

    Hello Harminder Riarh,

    RadMap don't use Bing Map Control or Bing 3D ActiveX in any way. It can show tiles from different sources. Bing map provider show tiles which can be accessed through Microsoft Bing Imagery service. Unfortunately tiles from your screenshot can't be accessed through this service.

    Best wishes,
