Why do maps have to open in Weatherbug? Is there a way to change this MS Visual Earth?

The WeatherBug maps dynamically load per weather station. There are too many to hard-code into the application, so it's easiest to just link to

I'm not sure what you're asking about MS Visual Earth. Please email me at with more details.
