Hacking Virtual Earth

Rev Dan Catt says, “Even though Google get a lot of press for their API, I believe that Virtual Earth is far easier to code and gives you more hooks and feedback to use. … From a coding point of view in my humble opinion Virtual Earth is better. Google is good, but I still find myself having to use hacks to get the results I want.” Even so, he says Geobloggers will still use Google Maps for its superior user experience.

On that note, there are a couple more links about using the Virtual Earth API. Via Virtual Earth has had a facelift since I last had a look at it, and includes a gallery of hacks (via Chandu Thota). The site now has RSS feeds, too.

There’s also this site, which seems to be an introduction; I have no comment on the video.
