I want to be able to include a link to Bing Maps at specific geocordinates and preferably include a pushpin at those same coordinates.

I have no problem with the centering on coordinates part of that as follows: http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=53.02102351~-1.48398532&lvl=16&dir=0&sty=c just replacing the coordinates with those I need, but it doesn't seem possible to add a push pin to this in case I'm missing something?

this will work:


you have to vary the sty= parameter

  • sty=o - birdeye perspective
  • sty=c - doesent work
