It's a way of understanding Bing coverage, particularly in relation to age of images. See the Bing/Coverage page for other tools, in particular there is another tool showing coverage coloured in red, developed as a fork of this tool.

Development

The tool was developed by Martijn van Exel.

Code for this resource now resides on github. [3]
