I couldn’t get Live.com to work in Camino so I used IE7 for it – the other two worked fine in Camino. Minus 10 points for Microsoft!
The satellite/aerial photography on all sites of our locale was pretty poor – the first one below is Microsoft’s view of our area. This was as much as I could zoom in and as you can see, it is very poor resolution.
Yahoo!’s image of our area is marginally better (but only very marginally). There is still very little detail visible and the image is terribly grainy.
Google’s image of our area was best of the three but it too is quite poor (our house is on the right hand side of the image – the left hand side is much higher resolution).
Curiously, when looking at the maps (as opposed to the satellite imagery) the Google Maps were by far the worst! Both Yahoo! and Microsoft use maps which are very high resolution and up-to-date (our street was built in 2004 and is on both maps) whereas Google has no street information for around here.
Maybe that’s just in this area – or have others noticed similar?
