Virtual Earth allows organizations to use SOAP and JScript interfaces to combine online maps with integrated data in order to visualize business information. Virtual Earth provides organizations with a host of features, such as the delivery of directions in many languages and 3D photorealistic views of city models, to get users where they’re going faster. The program also offers innovative solutions within nearly every industry. For example, Virtual Earth’s feature site is Harley-Davidson.com which uses a program called “Great Roads Explorer”. This program is used to showcase dealerships and hotel partners, and to bring customers together within the context of great American motorcycle journeys.
