Amazing Windows Live Local

Check this out: http://local.live.com/
 
They not only have the aerial map, but also have the bird’s eye view. It’s amazing to see how close you can watch your home or your office building from above! You can also check some famous places, like Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls, etc. Google Earth has somehow similar function… but for Live Local, you don’t need to download or install anything… impressive, simply.
And if you are a race car fan, don’t miss http://preview.local.live.com/. Enjoy~

  1. Looks like Age of Empires. 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for your recommendation! I love it.The bird’s eye view is amazing! Google maps only has the aerial view at a much lower resolution. Google earth uses the same aerial view, and the terrain is mapped in 3D for mountains, valleys and canyons.
