View Full Version : Virtual Earth features
05-26-2008, 03:01 AM
I was wondering if one can use Virtual Earth a little bit like MapPoint. Displaying data from a Dataset and these things. Or are these features MapPoint only?
Thanks in advance,

You should be able to use Virtual Earth for those things.. the programming is a lot different as well as the object model, but I think you can accomplish most of the same things.

Hmm, alright...I am just doing some research for my boss. Have you seen any code that could help me figuring out how complex it is and if it can be done from a .net Windows application?
My search didn't reveal any really useful information.
Thanks in advance

You can definitely do it from a .NET Windows application.
I would recommend to play with the dev kit (Virtual Earth SDK) and examples --
The Virtual Earth Interactive SDK (http://dev.live.com/virtualearth/sdk/)

I will give it a try. But I have to say I am a total newbie in this...is there a method you know that could help me?

The interactive SDK makes it pretty easy to step through code, for instance see "Show a map", "Show the default map" and look at the Source code.
Continue through all the rest of the options until you understand all the source code.
