До чего дошла конкуренция картографических съёмок...

Microsoft, видимо, вполне серьёзно решила переплюнуть Google в области Google Maps. Полюбуйтесь на фотографию моего дома с Windows Live Local:

6,69 КБ

(По ссылке откроется снимок окрестностей, 1332 x 933, 329K)

При некотором желании, можно разглядеть даже спутниковые тарелки около одного из окон...

Если пойти на Miscrosoft'овский блог "Virtual Earth", там можно найти ещё много интересного, например Лас-Вегас.

В том же блоге можно прочитать:

PC World magazine selects Live local as the best online mapping service!
PC World Awards the Editors Pick to Windows Live Local in a head to head comparison that included Yahoo, Google and MapQuest's mapping and local search sites. The review pointed out some of WLL's most convenient features:

Other Live Local innovations include a cookie-based scratch pad for retaining locations so you can easily get to them on return visits to the site, and a click-and-drag approach to defining a map area for enlargement. You can also add pushpins to a map by right-clicking on a location, after which you can add a note or get driving directions to (or from) a pin.

You can read the full WLL review here. In their respective reviews, Yahoo Local drew praise for multi-waypoint routing, while Google and MapQuest were each dinged for lack of features beyond basic mapping.

Бедный бедный Google...
