New Features in Live Search Maps

I know it was a few weeks ago when we released an updated version of Live Search Maps built on the Virtual Earth platform.  Unfortunately, I haven't had time to blog about it yet.  So in case you missed it, here are some details.  Some of the new features include:

  • Multi-Point Routing.  You can now specify multiple locations along a route when getting driving directions. 
  • Landmark Hints for driving directions which specify nearby locations to help out with route identification when driving.
  • Localized map tiles for different markets.
  • Real-Time Weather integrated with the 3D control
  • Improved Details Page for Business listings.
  • Improved Community Content Indexing so user generated content can be searched faster after it is uploaded.

For more details on the new Live Search Maps update, check out this post on Chris Pendleton's Blog.
