MapCruncher™ beta for Microsoft® Virtual Earth™ is a newly-released, innovative tool that allows anyone to import maps, layer them, and share them on a website using the Microsoft Virtual Earth platform. Quickly combine your drawn-to-scale map with the Microsoft Virtual Earth environment to create a unique, composite view. Supplement existing road and aerial imagery with detailed custom information by easily importing entire maps into the Virtual Earth environment.
MapCruncher is a tool designed to quickly convert existing maps into an online format that is as fast and easy to use as Virtual Earth. MapCruncher transforms maps into a common Mercator projection used by Virtual Earth. By putting a large collection of maps into a common projection, users can mix-and-match maps to use them in new ways. MapCruncher will take your input map (such as a PDF), and generate a collection of small, correctly-aligned tiles that can be viewed in Virtual Earth.
