Virtual Earth Featured on CNN

*** Updated 2023 ***

In June of 2008, CNN was broadcasting news about the horrific weather in the Midwest. Well, it turns out they used what was then a new option for illustrating their news stories with maps and imagery – Microsoft Virtual Earth. While the video of CNN’s Chad Myers highlighting the extreme weather by using the high resolution photography in Virtual Earth 3D to show users Lake Delton and the area where the lakeside bay eroded spilling the lake across the roads into the Wisconsin River destroying some of the homes in it’s path is now gone, you can still see the area as it is today for yourself in thelatest itteration of Virtual Earth, Microsoft Maps.

Check out the Windows Map App or Bing Maps for more great new imagery!
