Free Multimap API from Microsoft

Via the VE Evangelist blog (Note to MS: Such blog posts never show up on my news searches so it’s good that LiveSide pretty much repeats the posts. LiveSide always shows up in my news search. I wonder if its because I don’t use MSN Search?)

Bottom line:

-  for small businesses, personal websites and hobbyists (The service is limited to 50,000 transactions per year (which we track) and cannot be used for internal apps (eg BI, CRM))

- free embed map via single line of HTML

- map options: TeleAtlas, Ordnance Survey and Barts “look” or aerial for anywhere in the world (US included, using VE maps and aerial) and four options:

See this location on Multimap (for a bigger map, POI, business listings, etc)
See this location in Birds Eye
Get directions to this location
Get directions from this location

It works well. I’ve embedded a map below.
