With the new Bing Maps integration…
It’s easier than ever before to create a network database
as geo-spatially accurate as possible…
Directly within OSPInSight.
*Bing Maps is only available in MapInfo version 10.5 or newer.

Some comments to consider in regards to the accuracy of Bing maps …
According to Microsoft Employee Richard Brudritt “Pushpins and polylines,
polygons are defined using latitude/longitude coordinates, measured using
the WGS84 spatial reference system. These coordinates represent an angle,
measured at the center of the earth relative to the prime meridian and the
equator. So, the distance covered by 1 degree (or 6 d.p. of a degree, if you
prefer) depends where on the earth's surface you are. At the equator,
where the distance along the earth's surface covered by one degree of
longitude is greatest, 1 degree = approx 111.3km. So the &quot;accuracy&quot; of a
pushpin coordinate given to 0.000001 of a degree corresponds to about
10cm.
However, just because you're stating the coordinates with that degree of
accuracy doesn't mean that they will be displayed with that degree of
accuracy relative to, say, the satellite imagery map of the given location.
There are inherent approximations in the data collection of any of the
background map styles - satellite/road/or ortho-photo, which are captured
at different resolutions from a variety of different data sources - which is
why it's pretty pointless to state the coordinate location of a pushpin with
very high accuracy, because it will exceed the accuracy of the background
map anyway. There is no statement of &quot;guarantee&quot; of accuracy for Bing
Maps - the accuracy is good enough for most consumer-mapping purposes,
but I certainly wouldn't rely on it for a detailed specialist land survey, for
example.”

Remember… OSPInSight is only as accurate as your network database.
Bing Maps can be a helpful tool in the critical process
