Why I don't use Bing

A mapper came to town and has only one change set comment on all to be mapping buildings using Bing, (admittedly it looks the glossiest of the available imagery), so the mapper did a few missing streets of buildings here, thank you. Included in the Bing area is this.

except when surveying yesterday all the building=yes, no floors, no roof, nothing but one tag, found there to be more and ESRI shows it too, a few years later.

not only that, the green patch is a construction site with a 6 floor apartment block nearing completion, so added that too.

Which is why but for cross checking I don’t use Bing in my region of mapping for residential areas and buildings.

Just saying, don’t rely on Bing only… dated, in my region of mapping.
