There are some pretty dramatic views available on the new maps.live.com site of Portland. One of the features of this site, aside from the map, and satellite views that google maps and Yahoo Maps provide, is the “Bird’s Eye View”. I have explored the results of this for a few places in Portland, and in Las Vegas too. They have an amazing amount of detail, and being able to look at the given location from four directions is pretty impressive as well.

Check out these links for some samples:
The Hawthorne Bridge
Pioneer Place
Airplanes at the airport

It would be interesting to know how these images were captured. I assume from the angles that it had to be an airplane.

    Just as a note, this does not work on a Mac.

    Yeah it does. At least, using Firefox 2.0, OSX 10.4.8. Doesn’t work on Safari, though.
