Windows Live Local gets street-level imagery!

#1
If 45-degree "Eagle Eye" aerial imagery wasn't close enough to the ground for you, here's something even closer. The Virtual Earth team has now started rolling out street-level imagery into the new Windows Live Local Tech Preview.

It's only available for the Seattle and San Fransisco areas at the moment, but damn, you can "drive" around the city with your keyboard, and see what it would look like from the windshield of a car! :eek:

Now that is nice! Can we catch some air on the hills of Castro and
Alameda. Gonna want to cruise the restauraunts.

It's really a huge undertaking. Apparently, the Seattle area alone consists of ~10 million images!
I thought aerial imagery would be hard. But this is insane... :D

Google Earth (I think it was), also got rather close with the imaging detail...

As long as someone can't read the time off our wrist watch, we should be fine :D However, after they do, time to stop looking up... Anyone who's watched Enemy of the State before, will probably know what I'm alluding too :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
