Over than past few months, the Microsoft Virtual Earth team has been preparing the service for one of its biggest updates since the release. Whats the definition of "one of its biggest"? Well its over 48TB of new and improved imagery. Chris Pendleton, Virtual Earth technical evangelist at Microsoft, announced that the service has updated its global vector data for the majority of its tile sets.
The update includes multilingual tile sets for all zoom levels, localized tile sets for Japan, and all Birds Eye imagery has been updated with new road map labels. Microsoft has also added tons of new imagery data for the following countries: Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Greece, Herzegovina, Hungary, Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
