Google maps has always been considered the awesome. How totally awesome everyone says. That’s fine if they all live in a place which isn’t Lower Hutt. For some reason Google are releasing their Streetview service to New Zealand now, before they have even bothered to sort out their maps of Lower Hutt. We’re a pretty big city (by New Zealand’s standards) and we don’t have any satellite maps you can read. What a gype! You can’t even see our central business district!
It seems that Microsoft has come through with Live Search Maps! You can’t zoom in very far, but I can see my roof in this map of Naenae!
Shame that it doesn’t go closer. I bet they have satellite imagery of the middle of the Sahara Desert where nobody gives a crap though right?
