We launched some sweet new map data for Australia and even gave our Aussie friends down under a new URL to acces: http://local.live.com.au.
Here's some more detail about the release:
- More Yellow Pages listings from nine MSN’s mylocal property than you can shake a stick at
- New maps of the whole country built with updated road data
- Satellite imagery of 100% of the country at 15m resolution (Level 13)
- Satellite imagery of Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth at 1m resolution (Level 17) (N.B. Melbourne will be published after the initial release)
- Map/Satellite hybrid views for the above satellite imagery
- Updated driving directions and routing improvements
You may have poked fun when we first release, but not we really are becoming Virtual Earth (as opposed to Virtual America).
