Chris Pendleton announces, that if you live in one of those countries where Microsoft Virtual Earth didn’t have good imagery? There’s a good news Microsoft and Digital Globe are partnered, which’ll result in a Worldwide imagery improvement — “We now have access to one of the highest resolution global satellite imagery and aerial photography collections (460 million sq. km. + 1 million sq. km. per day moving forward) through a deal we've just struck with DigitalGlobe. We'll finally be able to backfill areas around the world where people have come to my blog and complained about Virtual Earth not having good imagery or photos in their countries - Poland, Hungary, Russia, Taiwan, Mexico, to name a few - I've heard you loud and clear. And, now, we're fixing that problem.”
