G’day, Windows Live Local Australia is Live

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).

    any chance the cameras went across the ditch and got low level shots of New Zealand as well?


    Ewe, I don’t think so. Sorry mate. In due time, though . . . in due time.
