How about Virtual Earth and FS Together!!

Recommended Posts

My wife had to look up an address the other day and the website automatically took her to Microsoft Virtual Earth, which lets you see aerial views from anywhere on earth. I'm talking down to seeing shingles and siding on houses and making out names of businesses! It takes a while for some of the maps to load which is understandable, but it got my idea gears turnig as to what if this capability was somehow combined with FS in a future version! It would be just like flying over real photo scenery at very low level. I could even see my rhododendron bush and my neighbor's pool cover lying on his lawn! (Must have been spring a year or two ago that the pic was taken.) Any possibility of a merger?? regards, Tom
