    Re: Google maps/earth - Mappoint

    Very different code bases. There might be some overlap between Virtual Earth & MapPoint (they're from the same company), but not between these two and Google Maps / Earth.

    Any similarities at the user area are because they are designed for similar jobs and they are in active competition (aka "one upmanship").
