Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D v2.5 Beta

Posted on June 7, 2008

Microsoft推出Virtual Earth基于地图的搜索工具,该服务集航拍照片、地图、黄页数据于一体。它有一个用于保存搜索资料的便笺本和能够利用Wi-Fi 访问节点、IP地址确定用户位置的“定位”功能。在Virtual Earth 3D中,就象在大型3D游戏的虚拟现实环境中一样,用户可以在城市之间、建筑物之间“飞来飞去”。除了真实地“再现”城市的地形外,Virtual Earth 3D中也包含一些现实世界中不存在的东西。Virtual Earth 3D不要求用户在硬盘上下载应用软件,而是直接在浏览器中运行。需要.NET Framework 2.0环境支持,需要在线安装。

Virtual Earth 3D brings you another step closer to knowing "what it is like out there".
You can easily browse, search and organize local information viewed in three dimensions, just the way it exists in the real world.

This enables you to more effectively find the data that is relevant to you, making Live Maps more useful than ever. Even better -- it''s just plain fun!

Virtual Earth 3D doesn''t support the 64-bit version of Windows Internet Explorer. If you are running a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows, use the 32-bit version of Windows Internet Explorer to view 3D maps
