Map World

Fri, 22 Oct 2010

Map World has been released by China's State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping using imagery collected over the last four years. Its interesting to see another "take" on the Google Maps idea; its not bad but no where near as slick as Google's service. The BBC provide a more detailed review with this snippet quite useful:

Within the nation's borders, images have a 2.5m resolution in rural areas and can go down to 0.6m resolution in 300 cities. Beyond its borders, images have a 500m resolution and many nations are blank when users zoom in.

One to watch simply because its a completely different set of data.
