Map Data Release – January, 2009

Chris Pendleton, who will be speaking at EUCI GIS 2.0 Conference, lets us know there is no expansion of map data this month. That doesn’t mean nothing happened.

For North America, Europe and Asia the road data has been updated in Microsoft Virtual Earth and the postal codes have been updated too for those countries where coverage for Virtual Earth data exists. You can find a full list of those countries at the MapPoint Web Service Geographic Coverage page. Add Japan to that and you have the full list. MapPoint Web Service and VE use the same data, with the exception of Japan which MapPoint does not have.
