Bing Maps team with AFComponents (AFC) together will provide a Flash-based interface for building robust map applications via SDK. Supported through AFC, their Flash controls access Bing Maps in a supported fashion and fall inline with Bing Maps TOUs. If you’re a commercial customer, you still require a commercial license; however, now you no longer have to wrap your own Flash control by accessing our tiles via the Bing Maps Web Service or reverse engineer our tiles schema and URI definitions directly to create your Flash control (a TOU violation!). Also, within AFC APIs you can access Bing Maps geocoding, routing, POI Search, road maps, aerial maps, hybrid maps, traffic layers and Bird’s Eye photos. AFComponents has their own showcase of enterprise customers including Air Services Australia which uses the Bing Maps Flash API for tracking flights in and out of Sydney International Airport.
