Bing maps – better than Google maps

Well Bing, Microsofts new search engine is really pushing what’s called Mashups. This is where different technologies on the internet are mixed together to essentially create a new experience. What they show in the video below is the potential for maps at street level, but with other peoples photos that are free to use from Fliker. They match up these photos to the buildings so you can essentially see what it was like when the person was there.

This is quite exciting for Photographers, but also everyone else as you get to experience things you may have missed, next step video??
