Virtual Earth’s new features

I'm always reading the blogs from Chris Pendelton and Johannes Kebeck because they are rich with information about the latest happenings on the Virtual Earth platform (a part of the Live Services from Microsoft). 


One of the interesting additions that has been unlocked for enterprise customers who are using their Customer Identification to authenticate with the service is the ability to display multiple routes for directions to the same place as shown in the image above.  Johannes has also covered what is new in Version 6.1 of Virtual Earth, including Bird's Eye Hybrid mode with road names and vegetation featured in 3D mode.

Las Vegas looks stunning now in 3D - I can't believe how realistic it is.  I almost want to go back again 😉
