    In June, Microsoft announced that it had added a massive 165 terabytes of new satellite and Global Ortho images to its Bing Maps database. Today, the company revealed that it has added even more images to its Bing Maps directory.
    In a new blog post, Microsoft said:

    Bird's Eye images show locations on the planet at a 45 degree angle and the images with Bird's Eye can show much more detail than regular Bing Map images.

    Microsoft added that 84,451 square kilometers of this new release contained all new images that covered areas of the planet that were not previously added before. The remaining 145,553 square kilometers used new images to replace older ones.

    Some of the new images include coverage of Niagara Falls, along with Tokyo Disneyland in Japan, Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver airport and more. Microsoft says that the Bird's Eye images for Bing Maps now cover a total of 1,388,593 square kilometers with 302 terabytes of data.
