Reverse Lookup Location from Bird's Eye tile file name

I have a 512x512 jpg taken from a Bing Bird's Eye view, but I don't know where it is from on the planet. How can I figure out where it is from?

Here is and example:
file name: be00100012231000301000.jpg
location : Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

file name: be000101001321013010000.jpg
location: ???

Bird's Eye tiles are individual scenes, and the tiling system is local to that scene. There is no direct correlation to the URL of any given Bird's Eye tile to any spatial location. The only way you can get the URL for a Bird's Eye scene is by calling the imagery metadata service documented here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/bingmaps/rest-services/imagery/get-imagery-metadata
Which will map from location to a Bird's Eye scene.
There is no reverse mapping from a Bird's Eye tile URL to a location (and generally you wouldn't need one because you had to have a location to get the URL in the first place).
