Feedback for Bing Maps App on Surface RT.
I need this feature:
- measure distance between two points on a map.
The reason why this is so important is determining distance from major roads / highways / expressways. I need the bee-shot / as the bird flies distance - not the distance on road.
Small particle pollution from major roads is linked with asthma / reactive airways in children. (I have no idea why we allow schools to be built on cheap land near express ways and major roads).
There is a study that shows a strong association less than 300 m from major road.
While there is a legend / key showing 100m distance, I would like the exact distance from a freeway or highway on two points / pins that I drop on the map.
Google Map Labs used to have something like this. I'm not sure if they still have it.
Thanks for adding this feature.
