With the war between mapping service reaching its zenith, Microsoft’s Bing Maps have decided that they too need to overhaul and improve themselves. Apparently, an attempt to do so is by adding a load of new satellite imagery to the collection of Bing Maps.


This one is a huge update of Bing Maps. You can gauge it from the fact that before this update, the total amount of data being presented by Bing Maps mounted up to a mere 129 terabytes. Now, only the new data that has been added to its repository is worth 165 terabytes. This essentially means that the total amount of the data now presented by Bing Maps has more than doubled.

In an official blog post, Bing wrote, “This release features imagery over North America, South America, Africa, Australia, Europe and Asia. The total area covered in this data release is nearly 38 million square kilometers.”

While satellite imagery still remains the backbone of most mapping services, aerial photography is also gaining traction. Apple’s Maps and Google Earth’s 3D version are taking them to create 3D models and now, Bing is also making use of aerial photography by Global Ortho photography.

The search engine claims that by now, it has completed aerial photography of U.S. and will soon complete that of Europe by this year’s end. You can make use of Bing World Tour App to indulge into more Bing Maps.
