"Maps.ca Launches Beta Version of Yellow Pages Portal Featuring Microsoft Virtual Earth
Maps.ca has beta launched a new version of its Yellow Pages portal, utilizing Virtual Earth maps and imagery to help customers locate and save business and travel information. The “find on a map” feature uses Virtual Earth AJAX Control’s geocoding capabilities, and provides relevant results for address or place-of-interest queries. By searching through the new site, customers can quickly locate business information, and are provided with driving directions and updates, including Virtual Earth traffic data. In addition, visitors are able to customize maps, selecting and saving locations most pertinent to them for access later."
