Bing Rolls out Massive Update of High Resolution Maps [Navigation]

Monday, 25 June 2012

Bing just rolled out a huge stockpile of new high resolution imagery for their mapping software so I decided to click and zoom around to see what new areas I can see.

They rolled out updates along the north shore of Lake Superior which is nice because the old images used to be pretty low quality. Not sure when it was taken but looks like earlier this spring just as the ice was breaking up. At least with the lakes frozen they really stand out and it’s easier to follow the rivers.

The particular map area above is False Dog Harbour where I got wind bound once during a trip. Good memories.

Things were looking good until I discovered a problem. Sorry Naturally Superior Adventures, you got covered up by a cloud. Don’t worry, Google Maps has you uncovered here.

 Feel free to explore yourself and take a tour of all the new areas just added.
