this is great – i was thinking of putting together an automated building recognition tool for Bing Imagery. Wasn’t so sure about Bing license implications – maybe Bing can do this also.
I’ve created a wiki page <a href="http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bing_road_detect_API">Bing road detect API</a>.There’s also a <a href="http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2011-February/thread.html#56310">mailing list thread</a> of course
