I am running a small GPS applet on my Boost cell phones that are Located in my vehicles. these Applets send GPS data to my server at home which is running a VB host program. the VB program parses the data from the phones and puts it onto a Mappoint 2006 map. Currently I have to use the saveaswebpage function, then extract the GIF out of the directory.. use Imagemagick API to turn it into a JPG for display on my in-wall Touchscreens and on my website... is there an easier, better way inherent in mappoint 2006 to create a JPG of the current activemap?
also can I have more than one map open at a time and switch back N forth in my VB program? so I could easier maintain 2 maps, 1 for Each vehicle. right now I am switching back and forth by opening and closing maps each time one of the GPS's requests to send an update into the server.. creates quite ab it of CPU usage on the host server..
