Our good friend, Chris Pendleton, decided it was time to give the technical peeps out there a sneak peak into how Bing Maps created the Streetside user experience. So, while our satellite imagery and orthographic aerial photography (Aerial map style) provide great context to accompany our vector-based raster maps (Road map style) and our oblique imagery (Bird’s Eye map style) is even higher resolution for increased zoom and cardinal rotation capabilities, Streetside brings you down to ground level (and you can go inside with Photosynth). Anyhow, for those of you interested in how they use Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) with photography (Photogrammetric processing) through a Silverlight interface and vector road information for reference points, this video is for you!
