Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Live Search, mapping to benefit from latest Microsoft acquisition

Microsoft this morning announced the purchase of Multimap, a U.K. company that describes itself as “one of the world’s leading providers of online mapping and location-based services. Our company delivers more online maps, point-to-point driving directions and geo-spatial (“where’s my nearest?”) searches to more businesses and consumers than any other supplier in Europe.”

As usual, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Multimap will operate as a subsidiary of Microsoft’s Online Services Group.

In addition to linking up with a host of predictable Microsoft products (Live Search, Virtual Earth) the company sees “future integration potential for a range of other Microsoft products and platforms.”
