Vizrt completes integration of Curious World Maps with Microsoft’s Virtual Earth

Vizrt has completed the integration of its Viz|Curious World Maps graphic mapping software with Microsoft’s Virtual Earth platform. Virtual Earth provides for the on-demand delivery of high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery.

The move allows the graphics staff at TV stations to populate its Viz|Curious World Maps templates with aerial and natural earth images from Virtual Earth. World Maps provides broadcasters local access to the imagery stored on Microsoft’s Internet-based Virtual Earth server.

The bird’s-eye-view imagery in Virtual Earth offers oblique imagery, allowing viewers see a much more realistic perspective. Oblique imagery provides perspective to city terrain at an angle versus from directly above, which is typical of ortho imagery commonly found in other satellite and aerial imaging platforms.
