Today bing launcht the first streetside city in Europe: London. It’s the first time that a city outside of the USA can be visited with streetside. It seems that the process is not finished yet – only the “panorama-mode” is visible. The vew as a driving car along the road is not shown untill now. But I am sure that this is just the first step. More functions, more citys and mor pictures will follow. Bing streetside is a heavy ressource for creative car-designers as you can see in the following screenshots that I took ;-)
First here is what you can see when starting bing-maps in Europe.
If you get closer of the UK you can see those regions in London where streetside pictures can be found.
The navigation is different that Google’s streetview. In Streetview you have to move an icon on the map. With streetside you have to move the map under the icon (allways in the center of the map).
Here are some funny screenshots – futuristic car design ;-)
