Bing "3D" maps of Cyprus

Postby Sotos » Mon Jul 02, 2012 10:29 am

I just noticed that Bing has added several locations of Cyprus in the "Bird's Eye" mode, which is some sort of aerial photography in an angle. (you could use this mode before but you didn't get the real "Bird's Eye" view) You can also rotate the view and see the same thing from different angles. Limassol, Paphos, Larnaca, Ayia Napa and several other locations are included. Some rural areas that nobody cares about such as Nicosia not included yet ... sorry :P This is the best map views for Cyprus. (no Streetview or equivalent available for Cyprus yet)

Google earth currently doesn't show anywhere as close views for any place in Cyprus. And you don't seem to know what "street view" is ;) Here is an example of Street View in NYC (use your mouse to rotate, click to move) street view There is no "street view" for Cyprus. Just satellite images.
