Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D is Live

In the ongoing battle to see who can be the more innovative, Microsoft is pulling ahead of Google in the maps arena by launching 3D maps. Currently, Virtual Earth 3D only covers 15 cities including San Francisco, Atlanta, and Boston. To get the best experience, you'll need a speedy broadband connection to load the extremely detailed image layers.

Don't be surprised if while flying over your city of choice, you see noticeable billboard ads. The ads are much more detailed than the satellite imagery so they stand out.

You'll need to download a setup file and be using Internet Explorer to view the 3D maps.
