Bing Maps for Enterprise (previously Microsoft Virtual Earth) is a geospatial mapping platform produced by Microsoft. It allows developers to create applications that layer location-relevant data on top of the Bing Maps map imagery. This includes imagery taken from satellite sensors, aerial cameras (including "Bird's Eye" aerial imagery taken at 45 degree angle view to show building façades and entrances) as well as 3D city models and terrain.

The Bing Maps platform also provides a comprehensive point-of-interest database and the capability to search by business, person and address. Microsoft uses the Bing Maps for Enterprise platform to power its Bing Maps product.
