Windows Live Local - Virtual Earth Technology Preview

This Windows Live Local technology preview gives you street-level views of two cities - San Francisco and Seattle, allowing you to virtually drive around and see overhead, front and side views of where you are.
Historically, maps give you a perspective of geographical information about a place. In Windows Live™ Local, powered by Virtual Earth™, you’ve seen road, aerial, and hybrid maps. Then, we introduced bird's eye views to give you a perspective from above. Now, we want you to be there, right in front of the pizza shop you are searching for, in the street-side views offered by Windows Live Local. Even though you haven’t left the comfort of your computer chair, you’ll feel like you’re actually there.
