Bing Maps - Aerial Maps
The bing aerial maps have now been incorporated into bird's eye maps. The aerial maps overlay satellite imagery onto a Road map and highlight roads and major landmarks for easy identification. Google Maps also provide satellite images, which many people say are superior to bing's satellite images. By subsuming their satellite images under their bird's eye images, bing maps is foregrounding a strong, unique feature while relegating a weaker, non-unique feature to the background.
