    Interactive Maps/Clickable maps using MapPoint WebService.

    Hi,

    I am using the evaluation version of MapPoint WebService.
    I need one urgent help from you all. I can access the static maps generated by the mapoint webservice but I wanted to know how to access the mapPoint's interactive maps for my evaluation subscription.
    Interactive maps are those maps which give zooming facility when we click on a perticular section of a map. Is there a link to it like the one for external use http://mappoint.msn.com/pdsmh3arzyfxysvnr023j445)/home.aspx.

    I wanted to know how I can get maps that are clickable from my evaluation account MapPoint WebService similar to the maps that we get from http://mappoint.msn.com link.

    Awaiting your reply.

    Thanking you in advance.

    Regards,
    Birendra

    Getting clickable maps isn't a function of what you're getting back from
    the web service but what type of object you're putting the returned image
    into. For a clickable map use a 'ImageButton' and for non-clickable use
    the 'Image' (for web apps). With the ImageButton object you can determine
    click coordinates which you can then convert to a lat/long (using the
    ConvertToLatLong method of the web service or doing it on the client side
    using the methods demonstrated in the 'PointConversion' demo app included
    in the SDK). Once in a lat/long form you can then recenter the map and
    zoom on that point similar to what you see on the MSN Maps & Directions
    site.

    The only thing that the web service can do is return the 'hot area'
    coordinates of icons if you specify that in the pushpins array that you
    pass as part of the MapSpecification to the GETMAP method.
