Local comparison of Google Earth vs. Virtual Earth

October 6, 2006
I noticed that Virtual Earth’s aerial photography has been recently updated for my local area, but unfortunately it is still out by at least 4 years. Comparing Google Earth’s view with Virtual Earth’s you can see in the included picture a local area I know very well that has added new developments in the last 4 years. Whilst Google Earth has better aerials, Virtual Earth has superior local data such as roads.
 
Live Local that is powered by Virtual Earth has some very accurate and relevant local data such as restaurants, which is very impressive. It is a shame that Google doesn’t know my local area as well as how it does the US.
