Bing Maps at TED
Great presentation by Blaise Agueray Arcas of Microsoft at TED recently. Its specifically about the augmented reality features of Bing maps, going from the traditional "panels", through to "slippy" maps and then the integration of crowd sourced information all overlain together and explorable searchable. It is smooth, exquisite and thoroughly compelling. He saves the best till last which was the full integration of Flickr photography, including imagery inside buildings, then on top of this he overlaid a live video feed for true real time augmented reality. Then go back outside, look up at the sky and get full details of the visible night-sky.
