Microsoft Launches Virtual Earth 3D

Today, Microsoft launched Virtual Earth 3D which is new version of their mapping application that allows 3D viewing of cities and you can “fly” through three-dimensional models of cities from directly within their Web browser.  It is connected to Windows Live Search.

But Virtual Earth 3D does include fixtures that might not necessarily be visible in the real world: “virtual billboards” float above buildings with advertisements on them as part of a pilot advertising program, said Stephen Lawler, general manager of the Virtual Earth group. For instance, Fox has a virtual billboard hovering above the AMC cinema in downtown San Francisco. Other advertisers are Nissan Motor, Zip Realty and John L. Scott realty.
