Bing Maps features updated satellite imagery and driving and walking directions to venues in Trinidad and Tobago

Microsoft’s Bing Maps of  Trinidad and Tobago have improved a lot since we first looked at satellite imagery of Google Maps of Trinidad.

Here’s a satellite map of Port of Spain, Trinidad. Note the NAPA building indicating the satellite imagery is more recent than that of Google Maps.

However, more interesting is an outcome of Microsoft partnering with Navteq – the ability of getting driving and walking directions to venues in Trinidad and Tobago. Its not 100% accurate, but impressive nevertheless.

Here is a screenshot of Bing Maps showing driving directions from Port of Spain Hospital to San Fernando General Hospital.
