Massive Live Local Maps and Imagery Updated

"Birds Eye views of dozens of cities around the world were added to the Virtual Earth platform last night. You can enjoy them at Live Search Maps or integrate them into your own applications with our Map Control. 10TB of new imagery went out in this release along with 28TB of refreshed street map tiles. The October imagery release is one of the largest for Birds Eye in a while, featuring coverage in Madrid, Stockholm, Copenhagen, plus 15 regions in the UK and US respectively (see below for full list) "

1 Terabyte = 1024 Gigabytes

(ensure 3D Virtual Earth Plugin is installed with IE7 before clicking the links)

Hi Mapperz - You don't need the 3d plugin for viewing the birds eye imagery.

many of the cities with Birds eye imagery also have 3D buildings and terrain, so if you're on FF or IE on Windows, definitely worth installing, not not needed if you just want to look at Birds eye view.

Just tried to test on OSX with Firefox 2 and the xpi file (plugin) failed and errored.

Guess I'll have to take a look on Parallels.

3D Plugin has been updated. Guess for the new Virtual Earth Engine due very soon.
Just seeing if the areas mention are really updated.
Some Aerial Photography is 'updated' but still 2 years old.

Not tried the 3D plugin on a Mac with OSX yet. But I would think it would run on Parallels.
Will try with BootCamp XP too.
