Just came across this:

http://www.jonasson.org/maps/

The website does side-by-side comparisons of Google and Bing satellite images.

Kind of neat because as you zoom in or pan on one image, the other zooms and pans to match.

That's a handy tool. I rarely look at Bing because I've found their imagery to be pretty poor most of the time but every once in a while they can be a bit better than Google. Having such an easy way to compare is nice.

I just tried it out for a known location and the typical result, Google is crisp and clear while Bing has about 50% cloud cover.

Great Find!

I just checked out York Factory (end of this summer's canoe trip). Bing had terribly poor imagery. I then tried Black River Lake MB and Bing had far more detailed imagery.
