Bing just made my day!

Bing just updated the imagery over my home town! Earlier 80% of the town was cloud-covered and I had to resort to GPS traces to map all the roads here. And believe me, with the poor accuracy of my receiver, I had a tough time doing so. But today when I wanted to update some more roads here where the imagery was good, I was pleasantly surprised to find clear ground view. Not a speck of cloud cover! Even up to the highest zoom levels! Now I can easily map all the minor details like building outlines, street lamps, minor streets and lots more.

Thank you Bing for this wonderful surprise :)

That's wonderful! If you haven't seen this yet, there is some very interesting work being done by MapBox on producing better satellite maps without clouds - http://www.wired.com/design/2013/05/a-cloudless-atlas/
