I have been a fan of Google Maps and Google Earth for a long time (relatively speaking…) and continue to think that they are amazing resources for fun and learning. I’ve been playing with a different map service lately, however, that I think is quite remarkable:

MSN LiveSearch Maps

The images and resolution for many of the sites that I searched was noticeably superior (and more recent) than the satellite imagery used by Google.

Compare this LiveSearch map of our school to this Google map, for example.

I think both services are wonderful resources and can definitely be used hand-in-hand.

Happy mapping!
