Microsoft presents MSN Virtual Earth map service

Posted on Tuesday, May 24 2005 @ 00:37:47 CEST by

Microsoft presented MSN Virtual Earth, a map service that allows visitors to zoom in on local areas and get information about restaurants, hotels, dry cleaners and more. MSN Virtual Earth will be launched this summer and it looks like it will be similar to Google Maps.

Bill Gates said the local search service will give users access to maps, aerial imagery photos, consumer and business directories and ratings and reviews.

MSN Virtual Earth includes satellite maps with 45-degree views of buildings and neighborhoods, and an overlay of street images. A online clipboard will also be offered so users will be able to take notes while searching.

Additionally Microosft will also incorporate a Wiki-like feature to enable visitors and businesses to add information about local services to the MSN Virtual Earth database.

Microsoft's upcoming local search service will compete against similar offerings from Amazon, Google and Yahoo.
