By May 29, 2007 2 Comments

Microsoft have just released a data update for their Virtual Earth layer of London. London is now available to view using their ‘BirdsEye‘ system. The unique selling point of the BirdsEye view is the ability to view any location from 4 angles – north/south/east and west. Pictured below is an example from the London dataset of St Paul’s Cathedral:

BirdsEye is a welcome addition, it provides a unique insight into the architecture of London.

You can view St Paul’s and the rest of Central London direct via Virtual Earth
