See the New York City in 3d
For those of you who have always wanted to visit New York but couldnt actually make it , Microsoft has the solution to it . Microsoft has launched there “Live Search maps 3-D” feature starting with New York and a few other cities.
Microsoft® Live Search Maps will today begin offering three-dimensional, photo-realistic views of New York City buildings and landscapes, with perspectives that few people — apart from Superman — have ever seen. The free online service will provide a unique look at many of New York’s iconic locations, along with local listings, ratings and reviews and driving directions to help people easily find, discover, plan and share relevant location information that is important to them on the Web.
Google also launched a new feature for Google Maps – Street View which will give you a street view of some of the cities . Now both of these announcements came at the same day from Google and Microsoft because it is all part of the O’ Reilly Where 2.0 Conference .
