The Windows Live Local blog reports on a new build of Virtual Earth. This version has features that will especially appeal to walkers, runners and bicyclists. It has new tools for drawing and measuring that can be creatively used to determine bicycle and running routes. In the new version of Virtual Earth, as the user employs the drawing tool a convenient tooltip reports the distance. When users share their favorite loops and routes drawn using the tools in Virtual Earth, the distance is displayed in the Collection Viewer. Not only can you plot and share your own favorite routes on Virtual Earth, but you can also discover routes plotted by other users. The new build includes other enhancements, but the features around drawing are the most exciting .
