ArcGis Explorer Online: Silverlight + Bing Maps

Wow! 😮 This is a Silverlight web application that you should see! ArcGis Explorer Online has the natural Windows look and feel thanks to the Ribbon bar. It really looks like the online version of Office.

Glad to see such an application that integrates the smooth Silverlight version of Bing Maps! 🙂
