Bing Maps Updated With 165TB of New High-resolution Imagery

Nate Ralph, writing for The Verge:

"Bing Maps has added a total of 165TB of new aerial images taken from satellites and aircraft, expanding the mapping app's trove of high-resolution photos to the remote corners of the globe."

I hadn't looked in on Microsoft's online map service in quite a while, but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the product when I chanced upon it last week. Now comes word that they've added even more hi-res imagery.

It's not only a Google Maps alternative, it's better!
