Note: This topic was updated for 9.3.1.

The popular Microsoft® Bing Maps™ Web service (formerly called Microsoft Virtual Earth) can be used in all ArcGIS products. Like other Web services you can use in ArcGIS, there is no data to store or manage locally. Instead, your map or globe simply accesses the Bing Maps server directly.

To use Bing Maps in ArcGIS Desktop, you work with three layers, each of which references one of the three Bing Maps services: Aerial, Road, and Hybrid (Aerial with labels).

Visit Using Bing Maps in ArcGIS to get started. 9.3.1 or more recent is required to use Bing Maps in ArcGIS.
