More fresh imagery for Virtual Earth

bahamasAnother imagery update for Virtual Earth.  They’ve still not released any new 3D “version 2″ cities (WHY??), but they keep pushing new imagery out at a good pace.

This update covers “only” 9TB of data, but they brag that it covers over 1 million square kilometers of Earth.  That sounds nice, but I wonder how it compares to previous releases and typical Google Earth releases?  I have no idea.  I have a feeling that it’s a pretty low number, but it sounds good because we have no scale to measure it against.

In any case, it’s still a very nice update and covers more than 65 countries.  You can get the full details on VE Evangelist’s blog.


  1. I don’t know why they do this thing but the same as last update they made, they put in list places wich they really didn’t updated. I’m talking here onlfy for my country Romania, wich appears in the list with a update for a town named Navodari, but that image was there since January this year.
