MSN Virtual Earth

Microsoft just made their online Virtual Earth available in order to compete with Google Maps. The interface is a lot slower than Google Maps, and while it tries to have a nice transparency effect with the menus hovering over the map, whenever I try to drag the map around it looks really choppy as the menus refresh more slowly than the rest of the map pane.

The satelitte photos seem to have more coverage than Google Maps. Here's PCC! Google Maps only has the Academy down the road in its maps. Unfortunately, Virtual Earth's maps aren't in color -- maybe they'll fix that later.

Try them out!


  • You're also forgeting that the Microsoftmap still has the world trade center, and has crushed Apple HQ and turned it into a parking lot.... According to their map... hehe... the world according to M$, officially
