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?

I've figured it out, seems I was just searching for the wrong keywords.

From the documentation I was able to add a point to the collections editor as follows:


For non-UK users who might not be able to view London Street Map, other map styles are available:


  • that link doesen't work any more

this will work:


you have to vary the sty= parameter

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

see documentation here

  • 7 years later....sty=c does work. I think you are just correct that (London Street map) must not be available in Germany.

  • @Fishcake it may depend on language settings: it works from Australia where EN is browser default.
