Ask.com now uses Virtual Earth


Great to see that ask.com has done the right thing and adopted the best mapping solution available on the web. See http://maps.ask.com.

 

And of course multimap (www.multimap.com) now has VE’s bird’s eye view images – hardly surprising since we acquired them a while ago. However I have recently overheard a couple of people saying "have you seen the cool new bird’s eye view" feature on Multimap?". Not realising of course that this is a feature of Virtual Earth that has been around for a while :-).

Actually I don’t care whether they use the feature on http://maps.live.com, on http://maps.ask.com, or www.multimap.com – it’s the same feature, as long as they’re using it (and aware of it).

    There was someone at the BBC Mashed 08 event that also said about how "Mulitmaps has this cool new imagery." I just thought "hey ho".

    This blog is really unreadable. But it’s cool that Microsoft gets its products spread worldwide.

    Unreadable? Are you talking about the colours or something else?

    Thanks.
