This section describes how to use Microsoft Bing Maps in GeoMedia Smart Client.
Note: Before you start following step by step the instructions on this page, be sure that you have a key for Microsoft Bing Maps.
Note: For every set of Microsoft Bing Maps a single feature has to be created.
Note: If you want to use BingMaps and WMTS on the client side your graphic card must be supported by JavaFX hardware acceleration. To check if your graphic card does, download the following JNLP file (http://smartclient.intergraph.at/gmsc/graphiccardvalidator/graphiccardvalidator.jnlp).
If you will see the following screenshot by opening the JNLP file everything is good for you.
Click on the WorkflowLink New Feature and then choose the option Bing Maps and you get forwarded to the form, where you can define some options for the new feature.

After defining all options click Save.
