Another Huge Virtual Earth/Live Maps Update

It seems like there is almost one a month to me. I was looking at mapping all the 4th of July fireworks displays in the valley to see which one we want to go to this year (we’ll probably go to Tempe’s) though where might be the least of our problems. As I was panning around I noticed that the imagery in the Phoenix area has much larger coverage than before. A quick Google search reveals that there was a HUGE update to the imagery for Virtual Earth. In many areas, Virtual Earth has surpassed Google Maps/Earth in the imagery/3D models. I’m actually finding myself using Virtual Earth for my mapping needs these days, rather than Google Maps. I just love saving my points of interest to collections.
