Tech Behind Virtual Earth 3D?

Microsoft mentions just “technology” in its press release about the new version of Virtual Earth that includes 3D buildings for 15 cities in the U.S. Still, other coverage notes the importance of Vexcel technology. (Boulder Daily Camera)

Harris put out a press release noting its technology and imagery from Pictometry are included.

And, Brady at O’Reilly Radar notes use of GeoTango tools.

Now, it’s possible that all these are part of the whole, but from a PR standpoint, it’s sure confusing that no single entity (even Microsoft) acknowledges them all, especially since it acquired two of the companies in the last year! I will say that in taking a quick look at the new version I did not see credit to Pictometry in the images from Boston.
