Yahoo Maps Beta Adds Satellite Images

Yahoo, in hopes to rival their competition, has finally added satellite images to their mapping system. After using it for a little while (I had to install Flash first) I started to like how smooth it ran. They did a really nice job putting it together, however, I don’t believe that they did enough to pull people away from the already popular Google Maps.

You shouldn’t be surprised if they soon offer a “Yahoo Earth” which would be a software version of their satellite mapping. Google and MSN currently have this software available to their customers at no cost. Right now it appears that Yahoo is just struggling to keep up.
