Last month [bing.com] we pushed out our largest amount of new imagery EVER in terms of square kilometers. This month, were blowing THAT record out of the water. You thought 1 million+ sq. km. was large? How about 6.7 million square kilometers! Its pretty much unfathomable. The big winners? Aerial: The Russian Federation, Australia, Mexico and most places in the US where we had black and white imagery.

Microsoft has always been known for its modesty.

StoutFiles, LOL!

Still, at least where I need it, Bing does a bang up job. Google (just to mention one) hasn't updated their photos in this area for close to two years. Bing's stuff is less than a year old and much more clear.

(Gad, I mean, it's free and here I am whining about G's pics, which are great. I hate doing that because I have had it done to me so often. Provided apps that did MAGIC--amazing!--and two weeks later, everyone yawns. This is a tough, tough biz.)

Gorg's map in my area is STILL 6 years old (can date by known structures in my backyard); bing is only 2.
