Microsoft Maps of Brighton

While Google Maps tend to get the publicity, Microsoft have a very good set of maps, and their detail level in Brighton is much better than Google's. For instance, here's a picture of my car parked in Hanover - it's the little yellow one in the middle of the picture. Brighton's a lovely place and there are much better things to see if you pan about a bit. It works best if you have a fast computer, but is pretty reasonable on slower machines.

I'm interested in what you can do when you can geolocate / tag items on the maps - it would be good to click on a building and see things like events there, links to pictures of previous events, and/or history on the building. Plenty of community-driven stuff to be done there.
