WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Bing Maps Photosynth Mashup

I’ve always been a big fan of Google Maps. But stuff like this is could sway me into using Bing Maps on a more regular basis:

Microsoft is combining geo-tagged, Creative Commons licensed photographs from Flickr, and integrating them with Bing Maps using their awesome Photosynth technology.

To try this feature yourself, you’ll need the Silverlight browser plugin.

  1. Looks really nice from Microsoft, my only hesitant is that it uses Silverlight, something of which I still see as limited since a lot of uses are not sure on what it is if they haven’t already installed it on their machine.

    Other than that, some great work by MS, I think this will only make Google add some new features very soon.

    In my opinion, it’s good to know that Bing is making this type of service. It is such a convenience when you are new to the place and you can’t find the exact location to, let say car selling stores, or what the place looks like.
