Terraserver - the forgotten Microsoft service

With all the interest that Google Maps is getting, especially with its "satellite" images features, Scoble notes that Microsoft has been offering the same aerial image data via its Terraserver site for a long time. In fact, the data via Microsoft is even more detailed, since it shows the USGS data at its full resolution (where objects 1 foot across can be seen), which is about a magnification of three compared with the full zoom at Google.

They also offer a feature like the Google Sightseeing blog, which they call Famous Places.
