Bing Maps steps up

5 03 2010

While watching a recent Steve Ballmer’s presentation regarding “the cloud”, the new version of bing maps was shown (+- min 30). Interesting? well, SHURE! At last you can experience a serious integration of a set of tools that are coming together (maps, search, flickr, world wide telescope, photosynth, etc.). Just take a look at it and judge for yourself. DO explore:

  • Map Apps ( will lead you on the available apps)
  • Zoom in and go from map, to aerial generated photo, to aerial photo/bird’s eye, to street watch
  • now map available photos to the street level with photosynth technology
  • look up and turn off the sun, allowing you to explore the night sky at any time/date you wish

I just took a peek and was really impressed. Still a lot to cover :).

Have fun!
