Configure Bing Maps

Esri Maps for SharePoint supports access to the Bing Maps Road, Aerial, and Hybrid maps if you have a Bing Maps Key. In the Silverlight-based ArcGIS Map Web Part, the Bing key can be configured as detailed in this topic. In the JavaScript-based Esri Maps Web Part, the Bing key is set by the administrator of your ArcGIS Online organization.

Access to the Bing services platform requires explicit registration with Microsoft. Once you've obtained a Bing Maps Key, add it to the BingKey.xml configuration file in the Esri Maps Configuration Settings document library as described below. Once the configuration file has been updated, the Bing Maps Road, Aerial, and Hybrid maps display in the Basemap gallery drop-down menu. You can then add any of these maps to the Map Web Part as a basemap.

Browse to the Configuration Settings list

As with other Esri Maps for SharePoint configuration lists and libraries, you can browse to the Configuration Settings list using the Esri Maps for SharePoint Administration links on the Site Settings page as shown in the following steps:

  1. Browse to the Site Settings page of your site collection.
  2. Under the Esri Maps for SharePoint heading, click the Configuration Settings link.

    Administration settings

  3. Click the BingKey hyperlink to open the item.
  4. On the form that appears, click Edit Item.
  5. Add the Bing Maps key to the Value box and click Save.
    Edit BingKey settings

Once a Bing Maps key has been specified, Bing Maps basemaps will be shown in the Basemap galleries of all ArcGIS Map Web Parts within the site collection containing the BingKey.xml file that was edited, provided that the Bing Maps basemaps are included in the Esri Maps Base Maps list. These basemaps are included in the list by default.
