Smile for the camera... Bing Maps vehicles roaming Kirkland (photos)

Microsoft's Bing Maps has a feature called Streetside which shows a photographic view from the street of an address (similar in function to Google's Street View feature). Bing Maps has contracted with Navteq to canvas Kirkland and we caught up with them in the Norkirk neighborhood on Monday. The vehicle looked to have close to a dozen cameras mounted on the roof. The drivers were quite friendly so be sure to say hello.

Currently, using Streetside in Kirkland is hit or miss as many streets are not yet in the system. We look forward to seeing the system updated.

Right now just might be a good time to tidy up that front yard.
