Microsoft Office 2013: Ten apps from the Store

The Bing Maps for Office app allows users to plot location data from an Excel spreadsheet on a Bing map embedded in the page.

The map can be manipulated via the embedded controls, allowing users to pan, zoom and change the map view.

Locations icons can be customised and made to reflect data - for instance, an icon can be a pie chart of data linked to that location.
