If Bing is the first one, it's pretty obviously the winner here.

It is always interesting to compare geospatial sources, especially now when they are so ubiquitous. I remember in the early days of Gaia I used to show layers of different aerial-photography sources allowing to view obscured elements, such as an entrance to a building, by switching to a different collection source. By the way, Gaia 3.4 will be out later this week and looks great.

Why is Google Maps left out of the competition?

Look at the small letters under the post:
