A New Dimension in Search?

From November 7, Microsoft promises to give us "a new dimension" for search, by enhancing its Windows Live Local service.

Virtual Earth Blog announced that Microsoft "will release a new version of the Virtual Earth Map Control on Tuesday, November 7th 2006".

I wonder if they're adding the third dimension to the maps. Windows Live Local (powered by Virtual Earth) doesn't have a great coverage for its imagery, but includes some great features like bird's eye view, scratch pad and location finder.

  1. I'm rather impressed with the birds-eye thing, like I mentioned on the other post, the changes in my area are so odd, like the birds eye on this one shows a year ago, what things were like.. yet the actual map and the air view haven't updated the actual street names, the new streets.. its really amusing
