And, of course, provides a developer kit to go along with it. You can see the Virtual Earth site here, and then check out Via VirtualEarth to see how you can include interactive maps on your page. Dr. Neil Roodyn has a couple of great articles on how to easily add the Virtual Earth control to your pages using some JavaScript code – and it works across all modern browsers.


If you want to jump directly to the samples or other Virtual Earth-related links, here are a few to get started:

  • Virtual Earth Team Blog
  • Virtual Earth Message Board
  • Creating Your First Virtual Earth Web Page
