Bing's new treasure maps

I feel this strong urge to actually appreciate something created by Microsoft.

 

 

Must resist...must resist...

Don't go appreciating yet, there is less data than googlemaps.

For example they don't have any of Michigan's linear state parks on the map. I'm positive there is missing data everywhere.

I also tried entering coords and it didn't work, had to put in an address and drag a flag around.

Plus there is probably a way for a hacker to walk right into you computer by exploiting a flaw in bing maps as is the norm for TinySofty.

Still looks cool tho.

Cool, but sloooooowwwwwwwwwww. I got one that has been running for over 1/2 hour so far. Had to open another browser because it had that one almost pegged.

I noticed the first time it took a small eternity.

The second time was faster.

Then I noticed that the smaller the area you cover the faster it gets.

Interesting that the 2nd time would be faster. I can see, however, that a smaller area would require fewer data points to be downloaded. Its almost an hour after the post that you quoted, and its still going! Not sure what the numbers refer to, but its now at 6300! I suspect I did grab too large an area.
