MS Virtual Earth - Now in 3D and With Billboards

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:53 pm

Microsoft is unveiling its integration of detailed 3D imagery into its Virtual Earth this afternoon (see Live.com). Users with Vista-ready Windows computers and IE 6 or 7 will be able to navigate through an aerial view of 15 select cities with enough detail to discern the texture of buildings and read clickable billboards from the likes of Fox, Nissan and John L. Scott Real Estate. Virtual Earth 3D is expected to expand to cover up to 100 cities around the world by the end of next summer.
