Jan Fajfr will teach you how to build small WP7 application to visualize data from the city bike sharing system.

I have a chance to live in Paris this year, which is a great city with a cool bike sharing system called Velib. There are more than 1000 bike stations, where you can just pick up a bike and then return it at some other station when your journey is finished. I was wondering if I could actually get the information about the stations and visualize using the Bing Map control. After some research I have found that another French city - Rennes also possesses a bike sharing system and it has a free developer API to obtain such data. So I said to myself it’s not Paris but why not. I decided to build an application for Windows Phone 7 which would allow the user to perform the following: 

    • Find the nearest stations using the GPS of the telephone and get the information about them (number of free bikes, number of places to put the bike). 
    • When user selects one station he can also compute directions to other stations near to entered destination address.
