Bing Maps updated with new birds eye view satellite images

Microsoft's Bing Maps has had a big boost to its bird's-eye view functionality, in the form of roughly 100,000 extra DVDs-worth of data.

Bing now has1,452,958 sq km, or half apetabyte, of satellite images that you can view. Nearly every major city around the globe is now rendered in incredible detail, allowing you to zoom in and view detail at a street level.

On top of the bird's-eye view tweaks, Bing Maps now offer an enhanced venue maps set-up. You can see things like football stadiums and train stations in detail in order to help you navigate a venue via the maps.

Finally it's now also possible to report problems direct from Bing Maps so you can let Microsoft know if there are any inaccuracies with its maps.

You can explore the new Bing Maps bird's-eye view images now at the Bing Maps website.
