The zoom levels available at my place of work and my residence are about the same on MSN and Google, however, Google's are in color and much crisper images.
Sorry, Google's still got my vote.

    Again, thanks for taking the time to comment. I am unsure as to the exact point in Cleveland you were refering to, but I don't think its all that important (nor should you publicize such things for all of XML.com et.Al. land to see :) as I can see and agree, in general, to your point. The color image provided by Google is definitely nice, although I'm not sure if the image quality is all that much different. In fact it almost seems that MSNVE has a slight edge, but, as per your point, its tough to say for sure as the color image makes the distinction of landmarks a lot more clear than does the black and white version.

    +1 for Google Maps :)

      Oh, and I added the links to the images that I posted to the wiki to the bottom of this post.

      Thanks again for both of your comments!
