Thoughts dumps ArcWeb for Virtual Earth

Well I wasn’t very surprised when I read the following article on AllPointsBlog:

New features include a new mapping platform that uses Microsoft’s Virtual Earth

Many will remember almost a year ago, ESRI was pointing out that used ArcWeb Services and a customized ArcWeb Explorer client for their mapping. Well no more, ArcWeb is out and Virtual Earth is in. I’ve noted on this blog a couple times while search for a new house that the mapping site was way too slow to use. Not sure if this was ESRI’s fault or’s, but in the end, they abandoned ArcWeb and went to Live Maps.

So I guess that leaves Nature Valley as the “premiere” ArcWeb site?
