Virtual Earth – Version 6 of VEMap

Somehow I had completely missed that version 6 of VEMap was due to drop and so you can imagine my delight when I went to Virtual Earth the other day and saw the new UI in place. 

 

The first thing to notice is that the URL for Virtual Earth has changed from http://local.live.com to http://maps.live.com.  Aside from that change you can see the following significant UI changes:

 

The heavy banner section that used to appear at the top of the page has been replaced with the standard Live.com banner:

The toolbar which appears underneath the banner has also had a pretty significant overhaul:

On the left side of the map where there used to be a huge advertisement, there is now a new section which provides access to common features.

There’s a new dashboard control and scale bar for zooming, panning, and changing views.  The new panning control also looks very nice.

Finally, when you install the 3D controls, the dashboard control gains some additional tools to allow rotating.

From a developer’s perspective there’s heaps of added functionality in V6 and I’d highly recommend taking a read of the following article to learn about some of the more important API and behavioral differences between V5 and V6
