The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft offers new window to the world

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Microsoft offers new window to the world: " 12 different views from a 40-degree angle, said Dante Pennacchia, a senior vice president at the company.
The planes take pictures of large areas at 4,500 feet and drop to 3,000 feet for detailed images.
So far, Pictometry has pictures covering about 28 percent of the U.S. population and aims to capture 80 percent in the next few years. The flight schedule is especially aggressive now because the leaves are off of trees, making it easier to see the land, according to Microsoft."
