A ton of mapping news came out yesterday. Search Engine Land has a great overview of ma lot of the ones that apply to the search engines.

- Google Launches "Street View" Photography - Microsoft Virtual Earth Expands 3-D Coverage To Include New York - MapQuest Introduces New ActionScript API For Richer Maps

Google Street Views: The Google Lat Long Blog posteda on it linking a video demonstration of it in action. I made my own yesterday at personal blog and here it is showing off my office neighborhood.

Check it out yourself, this is a street level view of around times square


Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D New York: To see this in action, check out this video and the press release.

I did not demo this because it doesn't run (or run well) on a Mac.

MapQuest API: Well, Garmin took advantage of it already. Check out MapQuests API for Adobe ActionScript for more information.
