    This is the second and conclusive article about an example of a Bing Maps extension using Silverlight. Let me briefly recall the objective: in the first article I wrote about the need which may arise when planning an itinerary, I underlined that knowing the elevation profile would be useful. Having this functionality using the Maps Silverlight Control is not difficult. In the following sections we will see how to get elevation data as well as to plot them on a graph. You can enjoy a demo here and download the code here.

  • Introducing the Earthquake Locator – A Bing Maps Silverlight Application, Part 1

    Bobby Diaz has created a nice Bing Maps application that shows the location and relative strength of recent seismic activity.

    The recent wave of earthquakes (no pun intended) being reported in the news got me wondering about the frequency and severity of earthquakes around the world. Since I’ve been doing a lot of Silverlight development lately, I decided to scratch my curiosity with a nice little Bing Maps application that will show the location and relative strength of recent seismic activity.

    One of the things I found missing in the current Bing Maps product is the possibility to create an elevation surface profile of routes. Perhaps this feature may not seem much on demand but actually affects more people than expected. Think for example about sports events like marathons and cycling races: to see a preview of the elevation profile of the trail would be of great benefit to the participants. But even if you're just simple hikers you might want to know what is the difference in level of your walking or bicycle trip to better understand the effort that it would entail.

  • Silverlight, Bing Maps and Vectors

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jan 14, 2010 (5 months ago)

    Mike Taulty was looking for an example of how Silverlight content is drawn with vectors and he found something good at Bing Maps.

    If you haven’t seen the Bing Maps beta with Silverlight & PhotoSynth and all that goodness then read this post from Chris and then go and check it out although I warn you that it can eat quite a bit of time once you get playing with it. Anyway, back to vectors. It’s easy to see the “vector effect” on Bing Maps by just zooming the browser up to 200% or 400% where you can see the quality of the fonts and UI elements.

    I don’t generally find the fall or winter an appropriate time to track weather conditions, but this is an exception.
