Microsoft Takes on Google Earth

The service is promised to provide:

  • Satellite images with 45-degree-angle views of buildings and neighborhoods
  • Satellite images with street map overlays
  • Ability to add local data layers, such as showing local businesses or restaurants

The service will allow users to choose from a number of different data types plus allow people to contribute their own information. The announcement came today at the D3 conference happening this week.

SearchEngineWatch.com has some pictures of the new service in use, check them out here.
