US: Bing Maps to get traffic video feeds from TrafficLand

TrafficLand, the largest authorized aggregator of live traffic video in the U.S., has announced its selection by Microsoft Corp. as the provider of live traffic video in the U.S. for Bing Maps.

TrafficLand developed a Microsoft Silverlight application for use within Bing Maps to display live traffic video from thousands of cameras showing real-time traffic, weather conditions and major news events.

In addition, the TrafficLand application gives Bing Maps customers’ access to “Top Local Cameras.” This feature displays the most viewed cameras from TrafficLand.com, and serves as an indicator of important events (traffic/news/weather) that are of interest to customers.
