    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Nov 05, 2009 (7 months ago)
    In this post David Burela explains how to use the Bing Maps control for databinding.Image

    There is code available on the Microsoft website that adds dependency properties to the Bing Maps control which expose ItemsCollection, ready for you to databind to. If you combine this with some custom datatemplates, you are able to databind directly to the map as you would expect.

    Storm Ideas has completed a rich interactive mapping application and web site for the Scottish Government, visualising a wealth of data for the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD).Image

    The SIMD identifies concentrations of deprivation across Scotland. Indexing these areas allows effective targeting of policies and funding with the aim of focusing on concentrated areas. The mapping application incorporates a broad range of data indicators covering areas such as income, health, education and crime and is publically available through the SIMD website.  In addition, it is hoped that the application can be shared and adapted for use by stakeholders both within the Scottish Government, and Local Authorities and NHS boards.

  • Data Binding with the Virtual Earth Control

    Michael S. Scherotter has a post about one really new Silverlight control - Virtual Earth Control.

    When I started looking at the VE control, it was apparent that the control was missing some features related to data binding:  I wanted to bind the coordinates returned from the Stores Service to shapes in the Map Layer, use a data templates to define what each store shape would look like, and synchronize the selection of stores in a listbox to the center of the map.
