Microsoft's answer to Google Earth

Nick Mead

Recent changes

  • Location Finder added to Microsoft Download Centre

Notes

There is no client to install for Bing Maps (previously known as Virtual Earth) as it is entirely web based. However, you can download the Location Finder utility which attempts to zero-in on your location more precisely, using WiFi access points and reverse IP lookups to determine your computer's location. Microsoft Location Finder is free, and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center.

Pros
  • Excellent visualisation features for roads and streets
  • Easy to navigate
Cons
  • Interface can be cluttered
  • Floating toolbar can be annoying

Virtual Earth is Microsoft’s next generation mapping and location service. It combines the MapPoint Web Service with new innovations around bird's eye, satellite and aerial imagery, map styles and usability as well as enhanced local search.

The Virtual Earth platform enables you add bird's eye imagery to such things as real estate applications for show prospective clients, enhance store locators with the dynamic, drag-n-drop maps and provide drivers with highly-visual driving directions.

Virtual Earth is powered by Windows Live Local, Microsoft’s online local search and mapping web site. Take your websites and applications to the next level by creating an immersive online mapping and visualization experience with the Virtual Earth platform.

"NOT ACCURATE! Not accurate on a Mac."

I think they need to get more accurate information. I looked up a specific location, my address and found it was a block away from it's real location. Fact is they had me living in the middle of the road. Or is it that I'm using a Mac.

Pros
  • It's nice that you offer this service.
Cons
  • Needs to become Mac compatible.
