We just shipped another 9,460 square kilometers of imagery onto Bing Maps. This month’s release showcases high precision imagery for the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom. The biggest drop by far was Greater Vancouver Metro…I wonder why. Hmm? Anyone up for a little curling in Canada? O Canada! In any case, it’s all 15-30 centimeter resolution imagery, so it’s pretty stunning. We also released a refresh of the mobile tile set for vector (road) maps....more on that in another post.
You can check out the full details of the release on the Bing Maps World Tour application which allows you to sit back and let the application give you a guided tour of the new imagery; or, you can navigate yourself to see the new imager, including previous releases.

Why is there a discrpencey on the months?
On the world tour app this update is listed as the november release. The release marked as october has no canadian updates.
Have you been talking to our PR manager? ;) The world tour will be updated. I am correct. :)
Okay as long as you can get everybody on the same page, I love your blog btw, you guys are doing some neat stuff. This the second release in a row there was a diffrence in the months.
The big drop for Vancouver is probably because we're holding a little event in February 12-28th 2010. You might want to check it out. :)
