nico, I updated your map to make it a Bing map.

For future reference, here is how you get a Bing URL:

Click "Share" (envelope icon) and copy the (shortened) URL & paste it into your browser's address bar. Verify that the scene is what you want to submit. Copy the expanded URL & paste it into URL field on the Submit Map form.
