What is Microsoft's MSN Virtual Earth?

A. Virtual Earth is Microsoft's equivalent of Google maps. It lets you view any area of the United States via a map or satellite image (or a hybrid view as the figure shows). The satellite images aren't real time and most are several years old (as the figure shows--otherwise it means I'm living on farmland). Visit the Virtual Earth Web site at for a test run
