Ask.com Maps: Aerial Europe
The first thing people usually try to do with our mapping product is look for an aerial shot of their house or where they grew up. Call it "vanity searching" for maps. Being from the Netherlands, that was a difficult proposition with all of the existing products out there. But with the launch of our Maps that is no longer the case.
Here is a shot of the town I grew up in.
Here is the university I went to in Eindhoven.
Working on our aerial maps makes it hard to get homesick. :)
Not only do we have great maps coverage for the Netherlands, but also for a lot of Western Europe and even parts of Northern and Eastern Europe. We hope to cover the entire world at some point, but this is a great start for our users in Europe.
Here are some other interesting shots:
Take a look around and let us know if you spot anything interesting.
