Walk the streets

Microsoft Virtual Earth now has a new function, an innovative one too, not just stolen from Google.

You can now walk or drive the streets, not just view from satellite perspective.
Currently the service is restricted to San Fransisco and Seattle, but I’m assured that the catalogue will be expanded in due course.

It’s all part of the ‘Windows Live’ beta that Microsoft are currently putting out there in preparation for it’s inclusion in Windows Vista.

Here I am, walking down Green Street in San Fransisco. My conclusion? Very impressive.

The site is Firefox friendly too.

  1. Yeh, it’s pretty cool, I tried it in the sports car though and kept driving too fast into car parks (which they hadn’t bothered to capture)…(fair enough!)
