Bing announced on the Bing Maps Developer blog that they have rolled out better rendering and styling improvements to their map imagery.
They added a new gradient coloring for land areas that adjusts the brightness to your zoom level. The new gradient helps improve the contrast, making streets and other features more visible, says Microsoft. Here are before and after shots.
