Microsoft has introduced a new version of MSN City Guides in a move the company calls "one step in a long term plan to help users stay in the know wherever they are."
The new MSN City Guides makes ample use of Live Search and Live Search Maps as well as video and social media. Users can share information through Windows Live and Facebook. Microsoft says this makes event organization easy.
Microsoft has also taken the opportunity to map out the routes for St. Patrick’s Day parades and highlight items like Irish pubs in Live Search Maps.
Google’s mapping products tend to attract a lot of attention, and like so many of Google’s efforts, a lot of advertisers, too. Microsoft wants everyone to know that there are advertising opportunities available through Live Search Maps, too, though.
Microsoft Live Search Maps has added a number of cities in 3-D to their service, among them New York City.
The 3-D images of New York City include aerial views of Times Square, Central Park, Wall Street and other well-known locations. The mapping service will also offer local listings, ratings, reviews and driving directions.
In addtition Live Search Maps will also offer real-time traffic information and custom maps that users can create and use for themselves or share with others.
