MSN to offer local-search service
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 6/21/2005 09:00:00 PM.

Microsoft's MSN plans to launch on Tuesday a test version of a local-search function that integrates mapping and satellite image technology to help consumers pinpoint nearby stores and other locales.

MSN Virtual Earth, which Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates previewed in May, adds new tools to a search feature called Near Me that lets people get search results tailored to a geographic location.

The new tools will show results from city- and region-specific White Pages and Yellow Pages directory information.

For example, a local search on "auto mechanics" will display listings of nearby mechanics, repair shops and towing companies. Each result will be shown as a numbered pin on a corresponding map from Microsoft MapPoint Web Service, and aerial images from TerraServer-USA will appear when available.
