Bing Maps – Pretty swish!!

If anyone wants to have a good look at their neighbours online then a good starting point is usually Google Maps. However, Microsoft aren’t standing still and have just revamped their maps system, complete with 3D aerial views which, when they ARE available for your area, are absolutely stunning.

Check out Bing Maps and zoom in – it’ll choose the best view possible as you zoom and, if available you can see aerial shots and spin around using the compass. Pretty sweet, and complete with photos. For my area Google still has better shots, but it’s good to see Microsoft doing a similar thing with sometimes better results.
