Can Bing Maps satellite imagery appear lighter

Hi,

Some of our users are complaining that the satellite imagery in Bing maps is too dark. Is there a property on the BingMapsLayer to do this?

Thanks!

Steve

Hi Steve,

I think for aerial imagery, the color cannot get changed, it don’t support this parameter.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/bingmaps/rest-services/imagery/get-imagery-metadata

Our map API “ColorMappings” can dynamic render target color to the other specified color, so it can make the image looks light, but I test it and found it don’t works for your scenario, because there are too many different colors in an aerial imagery, it works well in road map.

And finally I found if you set this the property “Transparency”, it will looks like a little light.
bingMapsLayer.Transparency = 200;

Wish that’s helpful.

Regards,

Ethan
