    So Bing took a big rabbit out of its hat ! it got 165TB of high resolution data for sharing on its Bing maps, just to compare, the total data with bing prior to this addition was 129TB !!

    so they have surely now got the data to rival and even surpass google maps here..

    So what kind of data is included in this list..
    AERIAL: HIGH-RESOLUTION NADIR OR "STRAIGHT DOWN" ORTHOPHOTOS TAKEN BY AIRCRAFT OR SATELLITE

    this is mean !! but all good for us...

    source and quoted article :D below..

    As long as the competition is healthy and end consumers like us can benefit. I have no brand royalty and would happily use any product which can serve the purpose for me.
