[OSM-talk] Bing coverage

I have noticed mappers make various attempts to map coverage of Bing 
high resolution imagery. Some drawed areas around the imagery and 
stuffed them into relations, others created xml files etc. etc. (see the 
wiki page [1])
I thought that a world coverage map wasn't feasible with those methods, 
so I took Martijn van Exel's Bing analyzer and tweaked in a way that it 
creates a simple red/green map of hires coverage (green=hires available, 
red=hires not available).
You will see that only a few spots have been rendered so far, but that 
is due to the way it works: You must zoom in to a hires zoom level in 
order to trigger the rendering. Try it out:
