I guess MSN.com just started their new map service. It’s pretty slick. vituralearth.msn.com.
Virtual Earth lets you scroll through the map on the fly and zoom in and out on the fly. You just move your mouse on the map and it moves. There’s a scale for the zooming in and out. It is very similar to Google Maps. Both offer satellite maps and traditional line-based maps. You can toggle between the two map types.
Virtual Earth lets you zoom in much closer on the satellite maps. However, both MSN and Google use the exact same satellite photography. MSN just resampled the image to allow viewers to zoom in further. That’s why the Virtual Earth photo looks a little more blurry in the sample image above.
