Microsoft has issued a new update to Bing Maps this morning, which adds a whopping 165 terabytes of high-resolution aerial images taken from aircraft and satellites. The images cover over 38 million square kilometers, spanning across Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America.
Microsoft writes on the Bing Maps blog:
Today we're thrilled to announce the publication of our largest satellite release to date. In fact, this release is larger than all of our past Aerial releases combined!
The latest Aerial release includes new Satellite imagery as well as Global Ortho photography.
The aircraft images alone — which cover over 160 "areas of interest" — account for 1.03 million square kilometers. They have captured landmarks like the Oropeza Mountains in Bolivia, the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, and the Sarychevo Peak Volcano in Russia.
This is the biggest update to Bing Maps to date, smashing its previous aerial footprint which was 129 terabytes in total.
