| What does this imply?
A pixel map is just an image, like a GIF. A vector map is composed of
instructions for drawing the map, including things like one way street
directions, speed limits, differentiating highways from city streets,
sometimes number of lanes. The two benefits of vector maps is that they
are smaller than pixel maps for storage, and they can be used for
calculating best path routes between multiple points.
I can't answer your questions about Microsoft Streets.
