Ask.com now uses Virtual Earth

Ask.com now uses Virtual Earth

  • Comments 3

Great to see that ask.com has done the right thing and adopted the best mapping solution available on the web. See http://maps.ask.com.

 

And of course multimap (www.multimap.com) now has VE's bird's eye view images - hardly surprising since we acquired them a while ago. However I have recently overheard a couple of people saying "have you seen the cool new bird's eye view" feature on Multimap?". Not realising of course that this is a feature of Virtual Earth that has been around for a while :-).

Actually I don't care whether they use the feature on http://maps.live.com, on http://maps.ask.com, or www.multimap.com - it's the same feature, as long as they're using it (and aware of it).

  • There was someone at the BBC Mashed 08 event that also said about how "Mulitmaps has this cool new imagery." I just thought "hey ho".

  • This blog is really unreadable. But it's cool that Microsoft gets its products spread worldwide.

  • Unreadable? Are you talking about the colours or something else?

    Thanks.
