    Vista Gadget That Tracks the International Space Station

    This is the second part of two articles about writing Vista Gadgets that use Virtual Earth. The first part ("Using Virtual Earth in a Vista Gadget") showed you how to write a Vista Gadget that showed a simple interactive map using Virtual Earth. This second part extends the gadget into something more useful: A Tracker for the International Space Station (ISS).

    Re: Vista Gadget That Tracks the International Space Station

    Along with Part 1 of this article, the source code and article have been updated to use Virtual Earth 6.2. The modified code and article can be found at the GeoWeb guru, here:

    Writing a Vista Gadget with Virtual Earth: Part 2, Tracking the International Space Station

    The changes for the ISS Tracker are more substantial and include a change of MSXML version, a different source for the orbital parameters that is updated more frequently, and a bug fix in the orbit calculation code to support Epoch 2009/etc.
