But these little things do not take away the pleasure, the option to rotate from four angles and the approach gives a good profit. Bears some resemblance with the Virtual Earth’s bird eye, but it isn’t equal, this looks more like an isometric view and that seems with more perspective, and it also looks like more colorful, but not many places even there.

This option to rotate is also on the ground view, being able to rotate in 90 degree angles, keeping the names always horizontal.

They’ve also added functions to the right button’s mouse, with which you can place the lat / long coordinate, or the alternative “what’s here”, which displays business and address in the selected point.

We’ll have to try the other features such as the intelligent zoom, which signals when it is making an enclosure from which there is no content.

They are left to prove.
