DeepEarth Shows Off the Amazing Deep Zoom

Description

Not too long ago, Steve Clayton blogged about DeepEarth, and I would be neglectful if I didn’t pass this link on to you. DeepEarth is, in one word, incredible. And it really shows off what Deep Zoom is capable of. The DeepEarth project was an open source community effort that was meant to be a learning experience for the participants as well as a way to show off Silverlight 2’s Deep Zoom capabilities in something both cool and useful. The result is a deep zoomable world map featuring imagery from Microsoft Virtual Earth. You can watch a video on YouTube about DeepEarth or you can just watch the video I made.
