At the end of last month, we heard that Microsoft’s Bing Maps had just received a boost in their imagery arsenal thanks to 165TB of new photos thrown into the database. Well, fast forward to a month later, and we have another morale boosting news for Bing Maps supporters and fans alike – the mapping software has just gained another 215TB of Bird’s Eye Imagery in their repository, where most of the attention is focused on Australia, Europe, New Zealand and Tokyo. Microsoft has not neglected to sharpen its fair share of US visuals though, where we are now told that there are more than 88,800 square miles which are covered by the new and updated aerial shots, with the total coverage of the most recent publication covering 230,004 square kilometers and comprises of more than 1.1 million files.
Some of the highlights of this latest release include Padre Island, Nueces County, Texas, Little Spokane River, Washington, Crystal Cove State Park, Newport Beach, California, Orange County Airport, California, Clearwater Harbor, Florida and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, Dallas, Texas.
