Our second revolution of the Virtual Earth Server is now available! Virtual Earth Server? Yes, we have a server product. If you have a need for offline or behind the firewall scenarios for your government or enterprise mapping applications, the Virtual Earth Server is the product for you. And, it’s available through Microsoft volume licensing which means it’s SUPER easy to buy. Easy = Good. And, it uses all the same maps and imagery that Bing Maps uses, but allows you to add your own imagery and photography or photography that is not included in the offering.

Are you going to say something about MapPoint 2010 today?
We started to post information on MP2Kmag and MapForums --
Good news. I didn't know that Virtual Earth had a dedicated server product.
I don't believe it is very cheap. Probably starting in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Think military applications on private, secure networks. I doubt you would even see any Fortune 500 company consider it.
i am wondering is this a program that does mapping off line ?Or is it like google earth.
Yep - for complete offline use.
