192.com adds better aerial photos

Online ‘people and business finder’ 192.com now has Google-style maps and aerial photos. It has a definite British accent, with Ordnance Survey maps and the most recent photography of all the competitors in the space (certainly for my house anyway). But its Flash-based interface isn’t quite as smooth as Google’s javascript-powered tool, and there’s no apparent scope for mashing. (Google just launched a ‘street view’ – but no UK support yet.)

  1. Well spotted, Simon – thanks. Add Google maps to Windows Live and this one – and chances are there are good images available. Have you seen the truly remarkable perspective views on Windows Live? Coverage is patchy – try Paignton in Devon for one I know works.
