Microsoft updates Bing Maps imagery to include more bird's eye views


Microsoft has released another huge update for their Bing Maps imagery.  Every few months, Bing releases another major update for their Maps application, to include new countries, cities and variations of different angles and levels of zoom.

This month, Bing Maps will be adding 194,000 square kilometers of new and fresh imagery.  This month's focus includes new high resolution 20cm aerial for Wellington, New Zealand and 60cm satellite updates for Australia, Mexico, Nambia, Russian Federation and South Africa.

You can now see all of these countries and cities in Enhanced Bird's Eye view, or switch to another view, like satellite or aerial. 

Two months ago, Bing released a massive update, covering 19 different countries and cities, adding well over 1 million square kilometers.
