19 Bing Services

20210327 Package: bing

What on earth is a Bing and why would a major search engine be name Bing? The thought is that Bing is the sound that we hear in our head when we make a new discovery! And here we have it as a MLHub package that demonstrates Microsoft Bing’s capabilities.

The bing package demonstrates and utilises the capabilities of the Bing Maps cloud service. In particular we expose the geocode command to convert an address to its longitude and latitude. A Bing Maps key is required and a free key with several thousands of free queries is supported.

To install, configure, and demonstrate the package:

ml install   bing
ml configure bing
ml readme    bing
ml commands  bing
ml demo      bing

In addition to the demo command the package also supports geocode.
