The royalist cities are visible at virtually thanks to technology acquired with the company Vexcel, a provider of photogrammetry, imagery and remote control technology. The applied technology is a Vexcel aerial camera flying over cities compiled a gallery of images that will be distributed in a completely automatic way instead of having to construct a building by hand, said Stephen Lawler, general manager of Virtual Earth group.
New Virtual Earth with 3D Clouds
The new version of Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D has a very realistic 3D clouds. They only appear when you are near the Earth and focus only on that region. But they are based on actual weather conditions. Microsoft is obviously using some rendering techniques of Flight Simulator in this new version of Virtual Earth.

The clouds are dark and thick and there are different types (cirrus, cumulus, party cloudy, etc.) according to the weather of the place at that time. To see them have two options: 1) load the new update for VE3D local.live.com entering and clicking the 3D button (a window will appear asking them to download the new version), then the browser will start to take effect
