    Bing's branding guidelines states, "Bing Maps data provider attribution information can be accessed through the Get Imagery Metadata method in Bing Maps REST Services."

    I see there's an imagery metadata classes in RadMaps, but I don't see how to access or use them. Can you provide an example?

    Hi Jason D,

    From the list of 4 usages of Imagery Metada API :
    -- Determine the vintage of the imagery at a location.

    -- Determine the availability of imagery at a location at a specified zoom level.

    -- Determine the availability of different types of imagery at a location.

    -- Build custom maps by stitching together imagery tiles.

    we use only the fourth - our RadMap stiches tiles of images. The ImageryMetadata help us get a link from which the tile Image is downloaded.

    So I don't think our API could help you in the mobile app requirement you work on (I guess this is your case). However, the API described in the link is pretty straightforward - you have URL with parameters and the response is in JSON format that you can deserialize.
