Microsoft Seeking Photos for VE

Microsoft is soliciting states and municipalities’ photography for inclusion in Virtual Earth:

We’re just starting a new program called “GoVE” which enables municipalities, state and local governments, aerial photographers, carrier pigeons, whoever, to share your imagery with Microsoft for publishing onto Virtual Earth the platform that powers thousands of enterprise applications, not to mention our own Live Search Maps.

Now your imagery can be part of the Virtual Earth we’re creating. Join in the world changing event that is Microsoft Virtual Earth.

User imagery can’t be far behind. Today in Virtual Earth users can create collections or lists of favorites and annotate them. But I don’t believe that they can add images. However images can be added to My Maps and Google Earth and all those files are supported by Virtual Earth and discoverable in Live Search Maps.
