European Maps and Aerial Imagery

SMS Text European Maps and Aerial Imagery

Adding to this week’s European UK maps and aerial image rollout by MSN Live Windows, has also reminded us (via employee Gary Price’s ResourceShelf blog) that they too have some rather detailed aerial imagery and street maps for most of Europe.

It’s still a work in progress (street names, locations for searching) but the Maps imagery looks very impressive. We also have imagery for a small portion of Australia. This map (PDF) offers a look at what resolution you’ll find for imagery for various parts of Europe.

Some examples:

* Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris, France
* Houses of Parliament, London
* The Canals of Amsterdam

Btw, in many, but not all cases, Ask Maps “dynamic locations” feature will work for European locations. The same is true for driving and walking directions. Remember, “right-clicking” on a specific point on a map allows you to quickly and easily add that location to your location list.
